heart Traditional Haiti Symbol It's Cactus Metal Art Haiti

The Haitian spirit of "The Fierce Mother - Erzulie Dantor" is represented by a heart pierced with a sword. This symbol is drawn onto temple floors during religious ceremonies to summon her presence. Meda Ulyssee has recreated that symbol in recycled metal. Of course, he had all of the cultural background to communicate its meaning with hammer and chisel, but we had to learn the story before we could fully appreciate the significance he struck into every detail. What we called simply ”Meda’s Heart” is actually much more. On a pure and elemental level, it is a beautiful representation of the strength of a mother’s love.
