As I’ve mentioned in an earlier post, Atlanta’s Theatrical Outfit is opening its new season with a stage adaptation of A Confederacy of Dunces. I’m so excited about the idea that I made a special trip to visit the statue of Ignatius J. Reilly while in New Orleans. Ignatius stands under the clock (not pictured) of what was the D.H. Holmes department store but is now the conference area of the Chateau Bourbon hotel.
Less well known is this fish painted to look like Ignatius, complete with Lucky Dog. This statue is in a planter of the second floor court yard.
Attention to detail is key, as this pyloric valve illustration shows. Also note the Lucky Dog actively being digested.
