Fleur De Lis Statues for Sale

So as you know, we are fleur de lis crazy right? Well if you have been to the New Orleans lately, (and we hope you have as the city really needs visitors right now) you probably noticed the beautiful, large free standing fleur de lis that are all over the city. These beautiful pieces of artwork are to help raise money for the Fore!Kids Foundation. The public art dispay has been going on since February 2007.

Well, not only are these fleur de lis gorgeous and artistic, but they are also for sale. You can actually own a piece of New Orleans buy purchasing one for $7500.00. If you click here, you will find the name of each piece, it's theme, location, and designer.

The themes range from black and gold, to rainbows, to pictures of the historic French Quarter. The one pictured above sits at 334 Royal Street in front of the New Orleans Police Departments 8th District Station. For history on the meaning of the fleur de lis, you can learn more by clicking here.

So you can actually own your own uniquely designed fleur de lis and support a great cause at the same time. The proceeds from the sale help in the rebuilding efforts of New Orleans. The public display is ending this month, so get your fleur de lis statue today.

These are absolutely gorgeous. I'm from Quebec, Canada and the fleur de lys is hugely popular here as well as it is a symbol of French Canada.

It is even on our Quebec provincial flag.

I wish I had money to afford one of these statues, but thanks for sharing anyhow! :)
