ABOUT THIS ORIXÁ
Oxalá was in charge of forming the bodies of humans in clay and breathe life into them. With his staff, his symbolic object, he separated the human from the divine in a distant time.
The fusion of religious cultures of Bahia, Oxalá is syncretized with Our Senhor do Bonfim due to fervent devotion that inspires.
