This Vodou flag was designed for an altar dedicated to Ezili Dantò. Ezili Dantò is a dark Petwo spirit imagined as a hardworking and fiercely protective mother. She is linked with the Catholic Madonna with Christ child, but her own child is a daughter called Anaïs. Her signs include knives, hearts and blood. She is the bitter rival of Ezili Freda, the Rada spirit of love.
