    AN INSPIRATION: Caroline Dye.

  • Cheryl

    Aunt Caroline Dye, born a Slave, c.1850-55, was a famous hoodoo woman or two-headed doctor who lived in Newport, Arkansas. The crudely sketched aura around her head and the winged, dog-headed figure with its hand or paw on her right shoulder -- indicate that she maintained some form of contact with other-worldly spirits. It is possible that the standing figure may represent a "spirit guide" or the Devil's black dog one meets at the crossroads in an Afro-European ritual of empowerment.
