13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Voodoo Festival, Haiti
HAITI, VILLE BONHEUR, A couple of Haitians by the waterfall of Saut d'eau. Haitian Voodoo officiants are simplicity in dress and attributes that attach to it as a clear religious reference. Not so among his descendants who hold similar hierarchies in those notes, however, an overload in the visible elements. So are multiple types of seed bead necklaces which are made with those sold in some public places. These insert other objects such as plates and key chains called "tears" of crystal chandeliers. In a note collar dozens of spools of sewing threads of different colors. It is clear that the cultural function added decorative elements. Not lacking in these attributes gold medals with pictures of St. Barbara or the Virgin of Caridad del Cobre.
