GULLAH CHRISTMAS <FALLA DA STA>

GULLAH CHRISTMAS

$ 300.00

This signed, numbered, LIMITED EDITION Giclee tells the story of what was secretly happening before the very eyes of the plantation owners. During the holidays there was some leniency given to enslaved people as the owners wanted them to embrace the Christmas story. So as the story teller proclaims loudly "falla da sta", of the nativity she is really sending the coded message, its time to go...follow the north star.  The north star quilt hung out to air, was further reinforcement letting all who knew the codes what it meant...as the spiritual "falla da drinkin gourd" is being sung.  It is an iconic painting which has appeared around the country and in PBS Broadcast. Limited edition, numbered and signed with certificate of authenticity. Available on canvas (unstreched)  or  archival watercolor paper.

Size: 24 x 30 $ 500.00 Limited to (100) or 18  x 24 $ 300.00  Limited to (100)

This is a reproduction of an original Diane Britton Dunham painting.
