In Voodoo rituals, the vévé is a pattern drawn on the ground to aid in calling forth the loa, or spirits. They are most frequently drawn in cornmeal (and sometimes partially eaten beforehand by the animal sacrifice), but other substances such as flour, ash, or even coffee grounds may be used. They tend to be much more elaborate than your typical pentagram.

The vévé is a symbolic pathway or road on which the loa travels between the two worlds. Each loa has its own unique vévé.
