Sterling Silver Babalawo Pendant


This pendant represents wisdom, knowledge and divination.

"Surprised and excited I took the box from him and opened it quickly. Inside laid a tiny mask made from what appeared to be sterling silver. It had eyes, nose and a mouth, and patterns running along the edges of an elongated head top. The mask was a pendant with a black cord attached to it. “This is mine?” I asked in astonishment, as I ran my thumb over the surface.
“Yes. Now that you are done homeschooling with me and will be going off to high school soon, I want to give you something that will remind you of not only me, but all those who came before us. This pendant belonged to your great-great-grandfather and serves the purpose of reminding the wearer that the universe is here,” he pointed to my forehead. “Always look inward for the answers and the spirits of the ancestors will guide you.”
“Thank you Baba. This is so cool!”" - See full story at our I Am Siwatu blog.
