The Voodoo Doll from Benin is back!
I tried to satirize the image that Hollywood has of Voodoo. In my youth, I was rocked by films where people cast spells with dolls, but in Africa, Voodoo is more than that, it's deeper, with rites, ceremonies.
Part of "The Mystical Apparition" Series, The Voodoo Doll immerses us in a mystical universe made up of ancestral traditions as well as practices of the past and present.
