The Ewe mark their premises with crosses when there is an epidemic. This is recorded in one of the Afa codes in which Afa made a pact with death, so that the cross is the sign of the pact between Death and Afa. A mark of the cross on a house reminds Death tat the house belongs to his friend Afa and should not be touched.But the belief of the Cross find new interpretations in the Christian uses of the Cross. The cristian meaning of crosses is now also associated with such designs in cloths.
