This is the venezuelan fetish of deity Eshu or Eleggua and one of the most respected deities of the Palo Religion tradition (another african religion developed by slaves from Central Africa in Cuba) . Is also called "Lucero" and is a child and trickster-god; tradition says that he plays frequently tempting choices to the one who is being guided by him for the purpose of causing maturation.

If you are a proud owner of a Lucero, you have to name him, talk to him, never have sex in the same room where he is (remember he is a child) and make offerings to him.

His colors are black and red, his number three (3) and the offerings to him consist in green fruits, candies, and food, always in the number of three. In catholic religion is represented by Saint Anthony.
