"Ogoun Badagris Vever"
Beads, paint, cowry shells on a cabinet door
A vever is a Voodoo symbol that represents
a particular loa or god.
Vevers were often drawn on the ground by
pouring corn meal.
That way, everyone present knew which loa
was being prayed to that night.
This is the vever of Ogoun Badagris,
the loa of iron and war.
Cowry shells in many cultures
are considered highly spiritual.
You have to make sure, though,
that the "mouth" is always smiling.
