Shango is known as the god of fire, lightning and thunder. He helps devotees gain self-control. Shango’s essence combines the logic of Obatala (white) alternating in balance with the fire of Aganju (red) in passion towards some goal. Shango hurls bolts of lightning at the people chosen to be his followers, leaving behind imprints of stone axe blades on the Earth’s crust. These blades can be seen easily after heavy rains. Veneration of Shango enables a great deal of power and self-control.
Shango altars often contain an often-seen carved figure of a woman holding her bosom as a gift to the god with a single double-blade axe sticking up from her head. The axe symbolizes that this devotee is possessed by Shango. The woman’s expression is calm and cool, expressing the qualities she has gained through her faith.
