I desperately need a better picture as this is one my single best painted models!
She features serveral snakes found around louisiana:
water mocassin(Agkistrodon piscivorus) -in her right hand as this snake I hold as pretty representative to louisiana!
Coral snake (Micrurus sp.) – on her headdress!
Copperhead(Agkistrodon contortrix) – at her feat
rattlesnake(Crotalus adamanteus) – draped around her neck
and OF COURSE the white alligator of the audubon zoo!
also the feathers are a cormorant
