The African Vodun, (different from Voodoo or Hoodoo) is said to be practiced essentially in the Western Africa, but there are many known reports across the continent. The Vodun cosmology support the existence of spirits (Loa), hierarchically arranged, that govern the Earth and control specific elements. It is an animist faith, believing that all natural things, such as plants, animals, rocks, etc, have spirits and can influence human events.
During the ceremonies, the invoked spirits may possess the bodies of the people who participates, transmitting knowledge such as advice or warnings. These rituals were normally performed to celebrate positive events and to trade food and gifts with the Loa for aid and protection.
The Vodun has a tremendously interesting system of rituals, involving strange dances, drumming, singing or even animal sacrifices.
It is important to note that in tribal Africa the concepts of protection or surviving have a very different meaning than ours, in our society.
In our design we portray a young tribal priestess as main figure. His nude body exalts the sexual, creative energy that commands life. It is said that she is mystically chosen by the oracle to be the spiritual guide of his community, someone who organises the most important ceremonies of her village.
