My Oil Colour portrait of Vodou lwa Agwe Ge Rouge. He is adorned in a decorative blue tunic and Kolye, a sacred bead necklace worn by vodouisants. He rises from the ocean with implements of the water which is his kingdom and Ogoun’s machete guards him…..

About ErzulieRedEyesArtandSpirit

I love art, I enjoy oil painting and drawing anything I wish. Vodou is my faith and I enjoy creating artistic images of the lwa and spiritual subjects. I also paint and draw other subjects when I'm inspired! When i'm not painting and drawing I enjoy dancing, and spending time with my family. My favorite medium is Oil but I also love to work with graphite pencil, pastels, pen and ink.
