Lazarus found in the Gospel of Luke (Luke 16:19-31) tells of the relationship in life and in death, between an unnamed rich man (the traditional name for a rich man is "Dives") and a poor beggar named Lazarus. Lazarus was venerated as a patron saint of lepers and forms the basis of one of two missions of the Military and Hospitaller Order of Saint Lazarus of Jerusalem which is dedicated to two ideals: aid to those suffering from the dreadful disease of leprosy and the defense of the Christian faith. Lazarus is often depicted as a starving beggar at the foot of the stairs leading up to a rich man's house, and who was covered in sores that even the dogs came to lick those sores.

Saint Lazarus is also known as Babalú-Ayé in Santeria. Babalú-Ayé is an Orisha strongly associated with infectious disease and healing. The name Babalú-Ayé translates as “Father, lord of the Earth” and points to the authority this orisha exercises on all things earthly, including the body, wealth, and physical possessions. In West Africa, he was strongly associated with epidemics of smallpox, leprosy, influenza, ebola, and HIV/AIDS. Although strongly associated with illness and disease, Babalú-Ayé is also the spirit that cures these ailments. Both feared and loved, Babalú-Ayé is sometimes referred to as the “Wrath of the supreme god” because he punishes people for their transgressions. People hold Babalú-Ayé in great respect and avoid calling his actual name, because they do not wish to invoke epidemics. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Babalú-Ayé)
Beautiful item of high quality. Properly packed and swiftly dispatched. Perfect transaction! 5/5! Thank you.
My shop only accepts PayPal as method of payment. In order for me to consider validating any transactions, payment must be made within 24 hours. If at that time payment wasn't complete, I will unfortunately have no choice but to cancel the transaction. With PayPal the buyer may pay straight from their own account, by credit card or check. In the latter case, It takes about 2 business days until I can be sure that a payment by check has been cleared. At that time I will happily complete the transaction as quick as I possibly can.
It is not necessary that the address on Etsy and PayPal match. Will ship to the address that appears on Etsy, unless the buyer notifies me. If the buyer provides a wrong address, I unfortunately can not provide a refund. Thank you for your understanding.
