An Orisha is a spirit that reflects one of the manifestations of God in Africa's Yoruba religion. Many Orishas have found their way throughout the Americas via the Atlantic slave trade and are now expressed in practices as varied as Santeria, Candomble, Trinidad Orisha, and Oyotunji.
Oya is the Orisha of tempest and love, she embodies the gentlest breeze to the raging cyclone, with her powers and machete she clears the path for new life and watches over the newly dead as they transit to the underworld.
This statue is beautifully designed. Sculpted and handcrafted to the finest detail in a cold cast metal (bronze/pewter) finish.
