Like most performing artists, blues musician Lucious Spiller had very limited opportunities for work during the pandemic. He is seen here at Hopson plantation outside Clarksdale, MS in the heart of the Mississippi Delta. Behind him is a large bottle tree made by artist Stephanie Dwyer. Bottle trees originated in the Congo in the 8th Century and their use migrated to the new world with enslaved Africans. It is believed that the colorful bottles capture evil spirits and offer protection.
