Artist's Description

The Bottle Tree

Photographed in Cherry Log, Georgia

In Southern Black American rural culture there was practice of creating a “Bottle Tree.” The black families who worked for the “rich folks” lived in small “shotgun houses” and believed that a Bottle Tree would keep the “hants” (ghosts) out of their homes at night. The legend was that the roving spirits would stay outside their homes, going through all the bottles on the tree, keeping their homes free of unwelcome spirits.
