Voodoo Family


I was going to draw a collection of LGBT gods, but ended up just drawing this voodoo spirit/god family. (Yes, they're real gods. I didn't make them up)

In the middle is Baron Samedi, the death and sex god who collects the spirits of the dead, and the head of the Guédé family. He is very rude but not evil, quite fun loving and bisexual (Disney's dr. Facilier was based on this guy).

On the right is his wife Maman Brigitte, another powerful death goddess, and one of the very few white gods in the voodoo religion. She's just as rude as her husband and protects gravestones in cemeteries if they're marked with a cross.

On the left is their son Ghede Nibo, who takes care of those who die young. He is sometimes depicted as an effeminate drag queen, and is said to make women lesbian or make them want to wear men's clothes.

Cute family, yes?

Wow, I knew about Baron Samedi but not the other two. Shows how much I need to brush up on my mythologies.

Is the Baron here being depicted as having hooves, or is that just an artistic choice?

That is the best family ever. So I give a tip of my hat to Dr. Facilier. ;)
