In Trinidad, Cuba, James Emery from Douglasville, United States visited the home of a Santería priest. He recalls: “The previous day, they had had a sacrifice. These are the remnants including a goat head, chicken feathers, and dried blood. Not included is the foul odor. This sacrifice is associated with a Babalawo.” ©creative commons license.
