Over 300 stunning Vodou artifacts from the internationally recognized Marianne Lehmann Collection are at the heart of the Vodou exhibition. The exhibition demystifies a spiritual tradition that remains very much alive in Haiti and among Haitians abroad. Shaped by a history of slavery, oppression and resistance, Haitian Vodou is far removed from the myths manufactured by Hollywood. It is both a spirituality and a cultural movement that celebrates the past and present of the Haitian people.
This souvenir catalogue contains over 60 beautiful photographs capturing the vibrancy of the artifacts featured in the exhibition, alongside insightful text that reveals the enduring appeal of this complex spirituality.
