A Picture And Its Story: Ogun - Sacrifice To The Iron God
Chief priest, Gbenga Saala (top) prays for one of the worshippers of the iron god Ogun during an annual prayer and sacrifice celebration in Abuja, Nigeria June 23, 2015. Every year worshippers offer a dog as sacrifice to Ogun, a traditional Nigerian deity, in hope of an auspicious year ahead. Taxi drivers, blacksmiths, panel beaters and mechanics - trades that depend on metal for their livelihood - pay homage to Ogun, led by high priest Gbenga Saala. As part of the ceremony, the priest pours the dog’s blood on symbols of these workers’ trade: keys, spanners and other tools piled up in a metal barrel. Picture taken June 23, 2015.
