Ogun is the African God of iron, energy, creativity, war, hunting and invention. This fierce warrior is one of the oldest Orishas and is pictured as a blacksmith as he’s a powerful spirit of metal work.
Ogun is said to be the first of the Orisha to descend to the realm of Ile Aiye (the earth) to find suitable habitation for future human life. One of his praise names is Osin Imole meaning "first of the primordial Orisha to come to Earth".
Ogun is the Orisha of barbers, doctors, butchers, blacksmiths and any occupation that uses knives or blades, or iron tools. Like metal, he is rigid and strong and is usually seen with a machete, bow and arrow or a hammer.
Ogun is the god of Truth and Justice and presides over deals and contracts. In Yoruba courts, devotees of the faith swear to tell the truth by kissing a machete sacred to Ogun.
