YORUBA SHANGO DANCE WANDS, Nigeria


*Yoruba Shango 47was selected by the Fitchburg Art Museum and was donated to their permanent collection.

In special festivals and processions, followers of Shango, the Yoruba god of thunder, carry dance wands, oshe shango, depicting a female devotee with Shango's symbol, the double-headed axe. Shango is thought to control the great powers of nature as one of the orisha, or gods.
