This is a symbolical painting of a well known person of New Orleans, Louisiana known as Papa Elliot.  In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, he gives a plea to other residents to stay and rebuild their beloved city.  City Center, Jackson Square is reflected in his sunglasses.  The keys around his neck symbolize the abandoned homes and buildings deserted by their owners.  The passing of the sunglasses reflects a plea for people to return and help rebuild their city.  A rescue vehicle in the background represents the small amount of help the city could provide for its inhabitants.
