Alisa Banks: "Our Lady takes its form from the homemade shrines and gardens found in homes throughout southern Louisiana where Madonna statues grace many lawns. This particular Madonna is from my mother's front yard. "The text is a fragment of a story of longing to grow and gift flowers, and a snip about being from the country. The dried flowers are from my garden. The rosary is fashioned from beans grown and harvested by my aunt. The medallion is of St. Michael the Archangel (dispeller of demons).
