Gran Ibo, the wise woman of the swamp and lwa of herbs and herbal medicine, sits on her balcony, overlooking the swamp. In her hand she holds her sacred canary. The swamp isnít immediately visible due to the lush foliage, but itís right on the other side of it. Gran Ibo communicates through the creatures and plants of the swamp. The sky in this card is a darker blue (late day?).

Her chair and balcony are red (passion, energy). She is sitting on them  controlling her energy, passion, choosing her battles.

A canary was once used to detect carbon monoxide in coal mines; this is a nod to wisdom and of heeding warnings (canary is yellow --> intellect).
