Voodoo Influenced Art

How important is religious influence in art?
Michelangelo took four years to complete the Sistine Chapel, entire periods of time in art were spent on biblical related art. In Hinduism every year a new painted statue is replaced in each temple to any of the 330 Billion gods/goddesses.
Denise Alvarado is a practitioner of New Orleans Voodoo and her beliefs are definitely key to her art and sculpture.
Just something to expand your horizons.
