Ju Jus and assemblage art
A Ju Ju is an object used as a charm, amulet, or means of protection; a fetish, or the supernatural or magical power attributed to such objects. Black Cat Ju Ju Dolls are commonly sought for their good luck (in gambling in particular) and protection properties. The term "ju ju" refers to an object, in this case a doll, that has been blessed and functions to keep evil and negativity away. Sometimes Ju Ju dolls are referred to as guardians because they are used to protect the home from negativity.
