Voodoo Loa

An exploration of Voodoo history.

These illustrations are a depiction of the Hatian Voodoo loas Baron Samedi and Maman Brigitte. Traditionally, they are the masters of the dead. Baron Samedi is also a giver of life, and is able to cure any mortal of any disease or wound, if he thinks it is worthwhile. Baron Samedi also ensures that the corpses of those who have died remain dead to prevent them from coming back as zombies. Both Baron Samedi and Maman Brigitte have a particular fondness for rum, tobacco, causing disruption, and being obscene.
