Louisiana Male Cajun Musician Made from Corn Husks and Wearing a Straw Hat (Three Quarter View)

Louisiana Male Cajun Musician Made from Corn Husks and Wearing a Straw Hat (Three Quarter View)

Handcrafted male figure from New Orleans. He is made with corn husks and is wearing a straw hat. He has a red bandana around his neck. He has a foil washboard or rub board on his chest. Washboards are traditional Cajun musical instruments. A small sign in front of the figure says "I heart Zydeco Music." Zydeco music evolved in Louisiana from the French Creole. Zydeco blends Cajun music, blues and rhythm and blues. Tag: "Brunella Luke, 4415 Bayouside Drive, Chauvin LA 70344." The figure is 6 inches (15 cm) tall.
