Now this IS a mystery. I love all things related to New Orleans and purchased this on eBay right after Hurricane Katrina. The listing said proceeds would go to help victims; whether that is true or not, I don't know. The seller claimed to be a descendant of Marie Laveau. Again, who knows? It is about the size and shape of a large skillet (handle not in picture) and HEAVY! Around the perimeter are raised capital letters which read: " ADAM SAID EVE GIMME A BITE, EVE SAY ADAM YOU GOT IT RIGHT!/ JIM WOOD 5/15/86 5JUDA" (or the 5 May be an S) The artwork is fascinating, too bad my photography skills are lacking. Daggers or knives in the mouths of Adam & Eve, the snake in the Garden of Eden winding up the tree and of course, the infamous "fruit"! Would love to know anything anyone can share...
