The photo to the left shows Bloody Mary at the Old New Orleans Historic Voodoo Museum where I, Bloody Mary was the historian for may moons (5 years) and worked with founder/ curator Charles Gandolfo. As both apprentice and advisor Voodoo Charley and I learned and worked well together to preserve the family tradition of Creole Voodoo, historically and magicly! Charles Gandolfo died Mardi Gras day 2001 ! The family takeover of the museum seems not to share the vision of the original museum so I operate my own spirit room and houmphor with a voodoo parlor for private clients- Though now separate from the museum but always with the spirits of Voodoo Charlie and the Great Marie Laveau at my side! I continue to own and run the ritual and tour company portion in the tradition and visions that began in 1971 with the Voodoo Museum -- informing and reaching out in honor of the Historic Creole Voodoo that is uniquely New Orleans. This inside look of the last live working we did with each other prior to his death is therefore an important memorial as well as review! Enjoy:
