Известная как «Змеиная королева», Мария Лаво была, пожалуй, самой известной жительницей Нового Орлеана. Своё прозвище она получила из-за того, что держала у себя огромного питона по кличке Зомби. Более того, она считается основательницей культа вуду в Новом Орлеане. Местное духовенство Марию ненавидело и боялось, но сделать ей что-то в «просвещённом» 19-м веке, да ещё и в Америке, не могли.
