A selection of creations to discover the tortured Pop Surrealist world of artist Odö aka Nicolas Le Borgne, who plays with great skill to grind the icons of pop culture, especially the Disney characters like Mickey and Donald , but also characters like SpongeBob, Bugs Bunny, Mario Bros or Krusty the Clown and Bender from Futurama. Creations that are full of details, in a style halfway between the tattoo and street art. Brilliant!
Fort Pike was constructed in 1818 to guard the Rigolets Pass (pronounced "rigolees") from reinvasion by the British. The Pass connects Lake Pontchartrain and Lake Catherine to Lake Borgne and the Gulf of Mexico. The Fort is now within the city limits of New Orleans and the Rigolets Pass forms one of the boundaries between Orleans and St. Tammany Parishes. Fort Pike was abandoned in 1890 and for many years had been a noteworthy tourist attraction.
This 19th century fort lies in ruins near the shore of Lake Borgne. It is also known as Fort Beauregard or Beauregard's Castle. It was built to protect New Orleans during the "war of northern aggression" but was never garrisoned because it quickly became obsolete due to artillery improvements. St. Bernard Parish.
