COLLECTION OF YORUBA ORISHAS
Not to diss on European mythologies but can we seriously have some fuckin’ recognition that there are religions and mythologies that are not Greek or Norse. Why the fuck did I learn about the Greeks 6 times but we never fucking talked about Africa or even really the mythologies and beliefs of native peoples?
(Pssst from what group are these deities from?)
The Yoruba of western Africa.
I love these…
I read a book about this as a teenager and it’s truly interesting. I love mythology.
Also, a friend of mine from Paraguay is a devout follower of Yemaja…
Ok, I’ll shut up about mythology now, but this photoset is very cool.
