Brujeria - Mexican Voodoo by xXxTanya-Big-TxXx Brujeria - Mexican Voodoo by xXxTanya-Big-TxXx
This piece of work was inspired by my Mexican culture. The picture shows La Virgen de Guadalupe along many other saints that are respected dearly by my community and it also shows La Santisima Muerte on both sides but it's known that La Santisima Muerte has nothing "saint" about it and it's been known to be used by witches and bad curanderas to do evil or harm on other people. Some people believe La Santisima Muerte symbolizes good but most people pray to it for evil or for wrong doings. The girl in the middle is meant to symbolize what is known to be an new age, evil curandera satanica (satanic faith healer) which in fact some curanderas are known for ritualistic sacrifices and the eating of raw animal flesh or organs and the consumption of its blood.

Many do view the Santisima Muerte as holy or just as any other saint pero tiene muy mala reputacion en Mexico. Siempre creci conociendo La Santisima Muerte como algo malo o algo que no debe estar relacionado con la iglesia. Muchos los que usan La Santisima Muerte son narcotraficantes o si no la usan para cosas malas pero muchas gracias por tu comentario. No muchos fueran agarrado mi concepto. Solamente un Latino lo podria entender.
