8048: Re: 8044: voudou flag question (fwd)

<< Several years ago a friend bought a flag bearing the image of Grand Bois. 
 anyone tell me the significance of Grand Bois? Many strange and interesting 
 things have happened to this flag and the wall it hangs on.
 Thanks much,

Grand Bois, or literally Big Wood, lives in the forest and is owner of leaves 
including those used for medicine and magic.  He is very important in Vodou 
because he is involved in initiation ceremonies to a great degree.

There is a page on the web specifically about the lwa Grand Bois at:
