Fleur De Lis

Bonjour!  I've been AWOL this past month but been working hard in the studio.  Really!
As you know or may not know the fleur de lis is a symbol seen in many places and especially here in New Orleans.
I don't use this in my art because...well...just because but decided to make some key chains for gifts this year. This particular shape of fleur de lis dates waaaay back.  Here is a picture of it from an old text book. That ochre color sandwiched in between is a piece of tin from Cafe de Monde. Which makes it extra special! Can you smell the coffee from here?
Together it says New Orleans.  At least to me it does.
Have a great Tuesday and talk to you all soon! _/\_ Namaste Kalaya
