Baron Samedi, or “Baron Saturday,” is one of the most recognized Loa. He appears as a charismatic figure in black coat tails and a top hat, handsome or skull-faced or both. His domain is Death, Resurrection, and Black Magic, and debauchery.
As Death's counter-point, Sexuality is also his domain, and phallic symbols are also associated with him. He leads the family of Ghede, the anarchistic spirits of the dead. In the voodoo religion, death a celebrated, and Baron and his family the life of the party. They are free and fearless, for the spirits of the dead are beyond all mortal dangers and social taboos. He is associated with Saint Gerard.
The veve design is a name-sigil, used to call upon the “Loa,” the Voodoo equivalents of a Saint or an Angel; the spirit-ambassadors between god and mankind. The veve is traditionally drawn on the ground in cornmeal or gunpowder, adorned with the Loa's favorite offerings or sacrifices, as a centerpiece of a shrine or ceremony.
