From Barbara Walker's "The Woman's Encyclopedia of Mythis and Secrets:" Voodoo god similar to the Trickster or Hermes of classical myth. Though an ithyphallic god of lust, Legba was also androgynous. In ceremonial dances his part was taken by a girl wearing an erect wooden hallus. He was considred an ebodiment of the Word or logos of the goddess Fa, "Fate."(1) Notes: (1) Hays, 341.
