Description: Shrines constitute the site for an interaction between individual Orisa and their followers. Lemanja & Agamju sculptures displayed within the shrine are not intended as a mere aesthetic compliment but rather to enhance a worshipper’s state of concentration. These male and female god figures depict idealized followers of the Orisa and induce in the actual devotee a state of receptiveness necessary for them to become a physical vehicle for the Orisa’s presence.
