Yoruba Orishas

divinemoon:

This is one of the most beautiful collection of art on the Orishas I have passed by. That is why I am sharing them all with you guys, you can tell how detailed they are; I just wish I knew who the artist was! On the very top is Elegua, following on the second row is Obatala, Babalu Aye, and Shango. Second row is Ochossi, Oshun, and Ogun. On the final row you will see Orula, Oya and Yemaya. I just love them, especially how the art depicts the specific Orisha such as Yemaya is of the sea and it shows her with ships, shells, etc.

Orishas are deities in the Yoruba spiritual/religious system
