I love these! Ochosi is on the left and Ogun is on the right. Both are part of the warriors that are received apart from Elegua and Osun.
These were the Ochossi and Ogun of my Padrino Afolabí Awoyoyomí (Shloma Rosenberg), iba’ye. His throne room was the single most awe-inspiring thing I have ever see in my life.
And just as a side-note, these are Ochosi and Ogun “in full,” not the Ochosi and Ogun received in a typical Warriors ceremony. In Ochosi is his father Odedeí (the cement head with antlers that appears to be an Elegba).
A further side-note: the hat hanging on Ochosi, along with the bag hung on the other side, are those of Haitian farmers. I think they call the bag a makout? Shloma was also an Hounsi in Vodou.
Logun Ede by Menote Cordeiro
Logun Ede (or Logumede) is the child of Oxum (Oshun) and Oxossi (Ochosi; or Oxossi Ibu Alamo, who is Erinle in Lukumi) and is said to live half the year as a man and half the year as a woman. Logun Ede is worshipped primarily in Brazil (and among the Lukumi in Miami), and is thought to be the patron of effeminate men (and, by the Lukumi, trans women). His symbols are Oxum’s mirror/fan and Oxossi’s bow and arrow. Maferefun Logun! <3
” (…) Oxóssi, filho de Iemanjá, divindade do clã de Ogum
É Ibualama, é Inlé, que Oxum levou no rio e nasceu Logunedé!
Sua natureza é da lua, na lua Oxóssi é Odé Odé-Odé, Odé-Odé
Rei de Keto Caboclo da mata Odé-Odé..
Quinta-feira é seu asé, Axoxó, feijão preto, camarão e amendoim
Azul e verde, suas cores, calça branca rendada, saia curta estampada
Ojá e couraça prateada, na mão ofá, iluquerê, Okê okê, okê arô, okê .
A jurema é a árvore sagrada, Okê arô, Oxóssi, okê okê
Na Bahia é São Jorge, no Rio, São Sebastião
Oxóssi é quem manda nas bandas do meu coração!”
Oxossi - Aline Calixto.

Oshun and Inle with their omo Logun Ede!
Logun Ede is the Orisha associated with gender variance, and is believed to live half the year as a man and half the year as a woman. Yes, my religion has deities of trans-ness! Mojuba Logun Ede!
