Altar Bottle La Sirene Haiti 3.5" x 12"

Haiti
$149.00

La Sirene is recognized in Haiti as a powerful water spirit. She has long-flowing hair, in contrast to that of Haitian women, thereby a sign of her “other-worldliness.” She is usually depicted with a comb, symbolizing her beauty and vanity. Often her imagery includes a mirror as well. Her underwater domain is considered to be the back of the mirror, and the glass itself represents the boundary between her world and ours. Her favorite colors are blue and green and offerings to her might include such things and seafood, seaglass, and seaweed. In return, she may bestow gifts of music and protection at sea, though she is known to be somewhat capricious. Voodoo bottles such as this are often placed in temples and sanctuaries as altar items and may additionally be incorporated into shrines for personal use.
