Esu Ona

Àwon Ìrun Ìmólè
forged iron, wood base; 104cm, 2004

Esu Ona opens the way. As the great messenger, he is the conduit of communication between the spirit realm and the physical world. No rituals can take place without first invoking Esu Ona, the only orixá who speaks every language. He is found here, rightfully, at the door of the exhibit.
