"Ogou" by Maxon Scylla

"Ogou" by Maxon Scylla


36” x 32” vodou flag handcrafted in Haiti. Ogou (St Jacques Le Majeur) is the God of War.

An art form unique to Haiti, “drapo vodou” are constructed of sequins and beads sewn onto fabric, and figure prominently in ceremonial rites and rituals. The creation of each spectacularly detailed drapo is a painstakingly laborious practice to honor the spirits ("lwa") while bringing to life the dynamic iconography of Haitian Vodou.

This piece is presented in partnership with Myriam Nader Haitian Art Gallery. 20% of proceeds will be donated to Pazapa, and that amount can be taken as a tax deduction by the buyer.
