In Voodoo we can't easily go out and just buy a statue of our Gods so most of us use what are called Catholic Mask or catholic figures to represent them.This came out of slavery when the slaves were forced to have to keep the appearance of having to worship the master's Gods.
Anyway enough of the history lesson.I repainted a small Mary wall hanging to represent the godess Ezili_Dantor. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ezili_Dantor
She's now hanging over my bed.
