PANEL TEXT:

Zaka (Azaka)
He is the male god of agriculture, who makes sure crops are bountiful at harvest. He is represented as a hardworking farmer who wears blue denim and a red scarf and likes the simple pleasures of life, like smoking his pipe and eating simple country foods. He is always shown carrying a hand-woven straw bag. His Catholic counterpart is St. Isidor, a farmer who was so pious that the angels cultivated his lands during his time of prayer.
