This image is from a series showing Afrocuban Orisha-dancers, with all the aspects and symbols used in the ceremonies. Ochun is smiling, you can almost hear her laughing. She knows about her beauty and loves being watched and adored. In Cuba her image is very seductive and erotic and she is a symbol for the beauty of women, yellow and golden (like brass) being her primordial colors.

The profit made by selling this Oshun T-shirt, which is ten dollars or euros for one piece, will be donated to the Susanne Wenger Foundation. It will be used to maintain the Sacred Oshun Grove in Osogbo, Nigeria, and the heritage of the artist Adunni Olorisa.
