Provenance: The Artist
Northside Skull and Bones Gang was lead by Chief Al Morris until his retirement. The current flag-bearer of the group is cultural maven Bruce "Sunpie" Barnes who was kind enough to bring the Big Chief to my studio in 2007. Skull and Bones gangs would typically haunt the streets before sunrise on mardi gras day warning children and adults to tread the straight and narrow path lest they fall victim to the spirits of retribution as personified by the skeletal costumes displayed. Chief Al here wears a cow pelvis as headdress.
