Zombi - A person can be turned into a zombi with a potent, and possibly deadly, poison. The poison, made with venom from the pufferfish is administered to the intended victim. All body functions slow down to the point that death seems to have taken place. The Vodou Bokor (see the Bokor Voodoo doll) digs up the person and gives them an antidote while at the same time placing the victims Ti Bon Ange (a part of the human soul that was loosened by the near death experience) into a clay jar and keeps it. The victim suffering loss of will from having a large part of their soul removed and probably suffering brain damage from the poison and lack of oxygen from being buried is turned into a zombi, forced to live only to serve the Bokor.

All Voodoo dolls are hand made from scratch by Scully Elly and therefore no two are exactly alike. You may choose the basic color scheme of your doll below, but keep in mind that the doll you receive will look similar to the one pictured (using the color of your choice as a basis) but not identical.

Please note that the names the dolls are given are simply style names and do not denote what the doll is or is supposed to do.

Approximately 9" in height.

by Louis Maistros

"Louis Maistros has written a lyrical, complex, and brave novel that takes enormous risks and pulls them all off. He is a writer to watch and keep reading, a writer to cherish."
Peter Straub

"The Society of North American Magic Realists welcomes its newest, most dazzling member, Louis Maistros. His debut novel is a thing of wonder, unlike anything in our literature. It startles. It stuns. It stupefies. No novel since CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES has done such justice to New Orleans. If Franz Kafka had been able to write like Peter Straub, this might have been the result."
Donald Harington,
Winner of the Robert Penn Warren Award and the Oxford-American Lifetime Achievement Award.

“The Sound of Building Coffins is easily one of the finest and truest pieces of New Orleans fiction I've ever read.”
- Poppy Z. Brite

“One has to write with considerable authenticity to pull off a story steeped in magic and swamp water that examines race and class, death and rebirth, Haitian voodoo, and the beginnings of jazz in 1891 New Orleans...The plot is complex and magical, grounded in the history of the city, without being overly sentimental. There is a comfort with death as a part of life in this work that reveals deep feeling for the city and its past....Highly recommended for all fiction collections, especially where there is an interest in jazz."
- Library Journal
