Mmoatia
This beautiful picture by Lokelani does not represent everyone's idea of a mmoatia. For one thing, their feet are supposed to point backwards. They are small human-like creatures that live in the forest. They are said to do the bidding of fetish priests, and to punish people who break the law, such as by working on the dabone, the day of evil, when work is forbidden.
