Oxóssi lives in the forest with his Ofá (bow and arrow). Smart and swift, he becomes a masterful hunter, an important skill in his role as a provider for homes. In his belt, he carries an Eruexim, which is a sacred object that wards off negative energies. This allows him to freely roam the woods, sharing the secret of his magical and medicinal herbs with Ossain and performing healings. He is infatuated with Nature’s gifts – bird songs, the movement of streams and brooks, the blooming of flowers, sunsets – all of which help to inspire and develop his brilliance in the fields of visual arts, performing arts, music, and literature.
