A woman deep in trance prepares for the sacrifice.  She is given a moments respite from her exhausting performance which reflects the devotion by which she approaches the ritual.  There is little separation between life and death in Haiti and this too is reflected in their religious ceremonies.  As life is dependent on the constant need for replenishment, the sacrifice symbolizes the cosmic process by which life is fed and so may begin again.
