Ever wonder why the elegant Rex parade each year includes a float with a giant cow? Well, it’s actually a bull - the Boeuf Gras or “fatted bull,” and it’s an ancient symbol of Carnival in France, where a live bull was paraded through the streets on Fat Tuesday. Traditionally surrounded by masked butchers and bakers, it represents the last meat eaten before the fasting of Lent. Le Bouef Gras, here, has broken away from his captors to escape his ancient fate and see the city, but as is the case whenever you feel the wind blowing in New Orleans, our friend can sense that a storm is coming.

These are all hand painted on the reverse side of reclaimed wooden windows.
