A component of Caribbean Folk Religion – especially among Adherents of Voodoo –  a ''Chico Charm''or Charm can be a figurine, made from twine (string) or metal wire. The medium is wrapped over and over again to form arms, legs, body and head. Worn about the neck, The Chico Man is said to protect One from only the most harmful and Evil of Spells (cast against the Wearer by Their Enemy). The Chico must be made and blessed by a Hougoun and must never be taken off for any reason.
