Quimbanda uses drawn points, or pontos riscados, to call the spirits to our rites and workings. When these pontos are made more permanent through beading them onto cloth and leather, these flags, or bandeiras, become imbued with the spiritual essence of that particular Exu or Pomba Gira. They are used to decorate the tronco, or for setting out offerings to those spirits the Quimbandeiro may work with more frequently- our personal and working Exus and Pomba Giras, or to fulfill a debt owed to a spirit who has fulfilled their mandated service.
These pieces are best commissioned for each particular spirit, with specific ponto discussed and confirmed through divination, as well as materials, colors, and size. If interested, please contact us.
When pieces are available for general purchase, they will listed here.
Salve bem povo de Quimbanda!
