While visiting the food and artisan markets of Bamako, we ran across the “fetish” market where all things voodoo permeate. There were cheetah fur, monkey, rat and warthog heads, whole rotting birds, shells, bones, skins, teeth, and i shall not go on. Much of these come from Benin, the origin of voodoo. Supposedly, monkey heads hold power, and some of the fetishes are used for ‘medicine’ and ‘good luck’. Check out this photo 5cense snapped.
