Orixá do Candomble
 
Brazilian culture is filled with african influences, a brazilian commissioned this wire sculpture, one of the many deities of their culture. 
 
Oxossi (also Oshosi, Ochosi, Ososi, Oxosi, or Osawsi) is both the Orisha of the hunt and the forest and is one of the three warrior orishas referred to as the "Ebora" in the Yoruba religion. He is a hunter and his role is often a solitary figure in the wilderness, which lends him another role as a shaman. He is also connected with all hunter communities, and is often depicted as a friend or ally of both the caboclos and the nature spirits of the forests of Brazil.
This Orisha is usually depicted wearing a bird head in he's head, and using a bow and arrow as he's weapon.
