The Ibeyi

 

 

The Ibeyi or divine twins are also known as the Jimaguas. They are the darlings children of Santeria and are said to be the bringers of great material prosperity. They are the children of Chango and are said to be his messengers. Twin dishes of candy and fruit are the offerings that are given to the Ibeyi. They are syncretized in Santeria with Saint Cosme and Saint Damian.
