Our Lady of the Who Dats celebrates Carnival Season! Originally all white, Our Lady has been painted to exacting detail. So pretty in her glittery robes of purple, green and gold (the traditional colors of Mardi Gras), she gazes serenely at the beads in her hands. A wreath of gem encrusted flowers encircles her lovely head. Complete with a genuine king cake baby and New Orleans' ubiquitous fleur de lis, this piece is reminiscent of the beautiful papier mache props that adorn the parade floats. For those who love the Big Easy, and Mardi Gras in particular, my Mardi Gras Madonna is sure to delight!

I make only a few Mardi Gras Heavenly Who Dats. They are for sale locally, as well as on Etsy. Please contact me if you are interested in purchasing one, and I will be happy to let you know if it is available. Thank you.

With its roots firmly planted in Catholicism, the Carnival season officially begins with the Epiphany, also known as Twelfth Night or Three Kings' Day. Epiphany falls on January 6, twelve days after Christmas, and celebrates the visit of the three Wise Men who came bearing gifts for the infant Jesus. In New Orleans, Epiphany kicks off a series of parties and parades leading up to Mardi Gras. At the stroke of midnight on Fat Tuesday, the party ends, and the penitential season of Lent begins. The colors of Mardi Gras are symbolic, with purple represnting justice, green representing faith and gold signifying power. Happy Mardi Gras!
