ON THE QUEST FOR MARIA LIONZA

We spent a spectacular day at the mountain of Cerro de Sorte in Yaracuy, Venezuela. This magical place is the origin of the Maria Lionza religion, a wild blend of Catholicism, Shamanism and Voodoo. Maria Lionza, the queen of the mountain is shown as a naked, full-breasted Indian, riding a large tapir.
Well, we felt a bit, as if we were on a movie set for “I walked with a zombie” vs. “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”
