What's With All The Bones?

Altar to Gede at Ashade Medows Vodou Peristyle in New Orleans

In many traditions, bones and skeletons represent our ancestors.Some of the images on our site are altars or images of Gede, the Vodou Lwa (spirit) of death. These images are not meant to be morbid or horrifying, but rather to represent that we are the living flesh and our ancestors are the bones that support up. Without them, we are nothing.
