SPIRIT SHRINES

In Haiti, housing people is a family affair. Several generations often live under the same roof, or sometimes within a collection of homes on a property called a lakou. The same holds true for the Spirits of that family. Spirit shrines or “Kay Lwa” have an important place in Vodou. But you do not need to be a Vodouisant to have a shrine to the spirits. Energy is energy - Love, Protection, Wealth, Happiness. Its all the same, all over the world. The Spirit Shrines we offer are hand crafted from pine wood, decorated in the favored colors, patterns, items and styles of the individual spirits. These are samples below. Each shrine is a hand made and unique piece of art. No two are identical - just as no two spirits are the same. Don’t see a particular Spirit house you want? Commissions are our specialty and cost no more than those listed below. Please contact Manbo for a special request or a specific Spirit Shrine of your own.

Baron Samedi is the father of the Ghede nation.  Cold, aloof and sometimes dangerous, Baron calculates the length of a person’s life. He cannot extend your life, but he can make sure you live the full length of it. We created a shrine for him that evokes his graveyard personality.  A tall cabinet in funeral colors of black, grey and purple, with funeral urns on each side and a cluster of grinning skulls on the top house a special memorial to the Baron.  Inside, a small gede angel plays the violin for the Baron’s pleasure.  Beneath him, two skulls face one another, heralding the eternity of death and it’s place in our lives.  18” tall, 12” wide, 6 inches deep, the shrine will come consecrated to the Baron, with his prayers, a petition of offering and an explanation for serving before it.
The Baron Shrine $550.00
