Collection: Yoruba Deities of Africa

Yoruban Deities is an artistic journey and a visual experience which can provide an educational vehicle for all to learn from. It symbolically depicts the most noteworthy divinities of the African based religion, Regla de Ocha. This religion, more frequently recognized as “Santeria” or “Lucumi” originated in Nigeria took shape in Cuba during and after the slave trade and reached North America through Afro-Cuban immigration. Aspects of Catholicism were freely borrowed by this religion (as a means of a survival tactic and/or disguise) and the identification of Catholic saints with the deities of Orisha worship became common among slaves. An Orisha is a spiritual being that possesses a divine power.
The supreme orishas in this pantheon such as Obatala, Ellegua, Chango, Ochun, Ogun, Yemeya and Oya are all patrons of an idea or of occurrences in nature. These African Goddesses and Gods of are exquisitely depicted and beautifully painted by the renowned fantasy artist, “Liz Sykes”.
