The deep forest is his domain. He goes into the forbidden territory and emerges with food. He emerges with medicine.
He emerges with sculptures in wood that dazzle the eye and reflect the power of orisa. I was taught that Ogun is senior to Sango and that he even gave Sango the power for which he is known today. So, let us stand tall before Baba Ogun today. Let us give thanks for the blessings of the forest that he shares with us: Iworikanran Cast divination for a rooster Also for Peregun Also for Ologunsese, a tree dedicated to the Orisa of hunting On the day they do not have a place They were roaming around the town, different from all the trees in the bush They were asked to perform an offering in order to be worshiped – Holy Odu IworiOkanran Peregun and Ologunsese are emblematic of Ogun. It is because of their sacrifices that we venerate them today. Aboru aboye abosise. Obafemi Origunwa, MA
