  1. Un vévé? But I can't ID the loa.

  2. it's a West African... ideogram I think is the word -- from that book by Robert Farris Thompson, Flash of the Spirit: African & Afro-American Art & Philosophy -- it has something to do with the afterlife as I recall

    actually if it is a Kongo-style 'cosmogram' then that would make it an ancestor for the Vévé right

    gosh i hope i'm not messing with Astral Forces here in my drivel-blog ....
