Gris Gris


Gris Gris is an African word defined as an amulet, or small piece of jewelry that is believed to bring protection or good luck against danger, evil or disease.
I envisioned my sculpture to be something like a cross between a native American dream catcher and an African fetish object.

I made this sculpture while mourning the lives of black males throughout the history of the US and specifically this past year (2020).
