Les pieds carbonent le sol

In the Obeah tradition, the Jumbie is thought to be a child who, having died, is forced to walk the earth at night, wearing its own feet backwards.

Marie-Hélène Bellavance’s Obiah No. 1, offers the image of a ghosted child’s legs that, with ankles furtively turned inwards, skittishly avoids a pair of flesh-coloured feet. The ghost, itself an inscrutable smear with legs, cannot seem to fathom its old body.
