Jalousie, a tribute to Prefete Duffaut

Jalousie has been turned into a colorful tribute to Haitian artist, Prefete Duffaut, whose imaginary cities rose up from canvas in a profusion that exemplifies the world's view of what a shanty town should, ideally, be. Reasons for choosing Jalousie as the site for this tribute range from the town's mayor wishing to make it a new tourist attraction, to wanting to give the residents a sense of national identity.
