Ayizan is the lwa of the marketplace. She is married to Loko and is also a healer.

In this card Ayizan is in the marketplace. This marketplace is not as vibrant or busy as the French Market (afterlife? Underworld? Meeting place between this world and spirit world?). The dead and living offer goods and wares. There is a clear blue sky.

Dead, living and Ayizan all dress in white  purity (also, white is the color of mourning in non-US and non-European cultures).

The dead and the living have something to offer [traditional: abundance, growth, fertility]

Healing: food as comfort? Retail therapy?

Ayizan wears a palm frond mask: palm fronds are sacred to Ayizan. Palms are used to make wine and the fronds are used to make roofs on huts. Palm trees grow coconuts. One tree gives much to a society (abundance and growth).
