Spirit of Collection #15 - a priest devoted to the spirit Omolu. Omolu inflicts and cures infectious disease. The priest’s headdress refers to Omulo’s royal status. As a child Omolu had smallpox. His mother Naña, the queen of the earth, was unable to cure him and decided to abandon him and leave him near the seashore. Iemanja, queen of the ocean found Omolu and took him in. When Omulo got older Iemanja convinced him to reunite with his mother. At their meeting Naña gave Omolu the title Obaluaye, king of the earth. In respect to Omolu’s powers his actual name is forbidden to be spoken out loud. Omolu is one of many aliases.
