KAKAGYE

Baule Funerary God

Also known as Kaka Guié

Bull-headed Spirit of the Dead

He turns up at funerals wearing the head of a bull — rather than the respectful dark suit you might expect.

His mission is to protect nervous souls from all the annoying relatives who might cause distraction and distress, and provide safe passage from this world to the next.

We feel this is a vital service. Funerals are no place for the dead.
