Product name: Papa Legba Cat’s Eye Pin
This pin was made in reverence to Papa Legba (also known as Elegua, Eshu, and Exu), the guardian of doorways and barriers, and the gatekeeper between the physical and spiritual realms.
It is made in combination maraca and bocchio (or gris gris) style, so it rattles when you shake it. It can be shaken any time you want to call the energy of Papa Legba. As a pin, you can wear it, use it for your dolls, or stick it someplace nearby when you need a boost or some charisma.
