Agayu owns the volcanos, the roots of the Earth. Known as the father of Chango, he shares many of Chango’s characteristics, including fire and the double-headed hatchet. Agayu is pictured as carrying the Earth or Elegua on his shoulders. His colors are deep brown and milky white, with accents in orange. Agayu’s necklace can also include accent beads in red, yellow, light and dark blue, green, and coral—there should be nine colors in all. In the Egwado branch of the Lucumi religion, Agayu is made directly; whereas in Havana and the US the child of Agayu is made to Chango with songs sung for Agayu (“oro Agayu”).
