A little over two years ago, I went to see the Krewe of Caesar parade in Metairie, LA. I was busily taking pictures when Caesar’s float placed Caesar too close to some oak tree branches. The float had to be stopped so that people could help Caesar get out from under the branches. As a precaution, the police re-routed the parade so that it turned at our intersection instead of turning a block down from us. Later on when the double dragon float came near us, it had a hard time turning at our intersection. One of the dragonheads came close to running into a yield sign. It finally did make the turn.

So, I decided to place the two connected stories together in this piece. One side is representative of Caesar’s plumes and the other side is representative of the dragonhead. This one proved a bit difficult to render. Anyway, there’s those are the two stories.

  1. Hi Mo! Great job on this. The dragon half is very scary looking. Once again, I really enjoyed hearing the story behind your art. :)
