Work by Isael Maxakali

This design, the bat, is very important – because the bat unites with me, it cures a sick person, there are many powerful songs to cure sick people. For this reason I made this design of a bat, it has red paint, and charcoal. There is a ritual that cures ill people, for which I made this design, to show, for everyone  to know the bat, because there are many songs that cure ill people.
