Eleggua

Eleggua Eleggua (Legba, Exu, Eshu) is the Orisha of crossroads, doorways, and gates. He is the messenger of the gods- no Orisha can be contacted except through him, and his dress and conflicting mannerisms reflect this double-sided nature (he is sometimes depicted with two faces, especially in Yoruban art). Eleggua is also the guardian of the doorway between the earthly and divine realms. http://altreligion.about.com/library/weekly/aa110702a.htm
