“In the region of Port-au-Prince the vèvès are made with great care so that they are clearly visible and almost geometrically flawless. Elsewhere, however, it is made carelessly and crudely…

The vèvès represent figures of the astral forces in a different way than the asson does. Their manufacture in the oum’phor is the reproduction…of the astral forces themselves. This fact signifies that the veves, considered as astral forces, are necessarily personified by the star-ancestors whose cult is Vodou – these ancestors being themselves personified by the loas, the spirits, the voudoun, or the mysteres that ‘mount’ the Vodouists.

…the reproduction of the astral forces represented by the vèvè obliges the loas (who are representations of heavenly bodies, stars and planets) to descend to earth.”

-Milo Rigaud, Secrets of Voodoo, p 67-68 (Pocket Books, 1971)

The students at the New Vision Art School in Port-au-Prince, Haiti have created an incredible series of artistic vèvès associated with the deeper manifestation of Craig Williams recent publication, Cult of Golgotha (Anathema Publishing, Ltd., 2018).

 

“(These) vèvè show the presence of Golgotha in Haitian vodou.” – Lesly Pierrepaul, Director, New Vision Art School
