Sacred Veve symbol for Haitian Vodou spirit Marinette Bwa Cheche, a once living Mambo who became a Vodou lwa after her physical death. She is said to be an aggressive, powerful entity that may appear in the form of an Owl. She is Guardian of the Lougarou, (the werewolves,) evil spirits that eat away at people. Mambo Marinette is also said to be a healer and helpful to her faithful serviteurs. Some Vodouisants in Haiti have her as a family lwa which is inherited and passed down to them from one generation to the next. She is also a lwa of secret society and feared by many who serve the lwa….

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.
