This photo was taken very early Mardi Gras morning, 2013. Mondo Kayo Social Club is one of the first groups to hit the street and meanders from Tracy’s Pub on Magazine Street, down St. Charles Avenue and onto Canal Street. The dreamlike quality the beeswax gives to this image is reminiscent of the morning…surreal colors and costumes under the dim, early morning sky.
Glitter, confetti and rhinestones add a tactile quality to the smooth finish of the wax. (And really…what is Mardi Gras without a LOT of glitter and confetti??)
