The religion of Voodoo, which actually means "Spirit of God," is now seen as a pop culture phenomenon, rather than a sacred practice. These items mock the traditional Afro-American religion and have little to do with the sanctity of divine spirits.
The most commonly recognized symbol of the ancient culture are Voodoo dolls, which represent a person's spirit and, in traditional practice, are used to call on the assistance of powerful forces known as Loa.
Products that intrigue or that are somewhat taboo continue to fascinate. Association with myth in design products has proven very popular.
