Santos in Motion #1 is part of an on-going a series exploring the “movement” in various religious symbols. Although practitioners of Voodoo aren’t Christian, they use many of the symbols of Christianity in the practice of their religion believing the objects have an inherent energy that can be manipulated. The idea behind this series is to convey the “energy” of various religious symbols which spin like electrons around the nucleus of atoms.
