about

"In all African forms of worship in Cuba, the Fundamento is the root, the principle and the origin of something immaterial. This name is given to all the stones inhabited by the Orishas and to the Nganga pots. Because it is integrated with a god or a spirit, anything that is the object of worship is a Fundamento."

- Lydia Cabrera

- Alejo Carpentier
