Painting - Acrylic On Canvas
Yemanja is an orisha, originally of the Yoruba religion, who has become prominent in many Afro-American religions. Africans from what is now called Yorubaland brought Yemaya/Yemoja and a host of other deities/energy forces in nature with them when they were brought to the shores of the Americas as captives. She is the ocean, the essence of motherhood, and a protector of children. This painting was done years ago in honor of the Sea. The coast is gold glitter, the 13 figures represent Yemaya's 13 children. This is a special painting!
