Symbol of PAPA LEGBA Lao gatekeeper to the spirit world: In Vodou both man and cosmos are considered to be of two natures: half metaphysical, half material. The symbol of the cross is often used to show how these realms reflect each other in the mirror which is the horizontal arm of the cross. "Sound the mirror!" is a formula repeated over and over in the liturgy of Vodou, a call to its devotees to ponder and plumb its deepest secrets.
