This image is from a series showing Afrocuban Orisha-dancers in action, with all the aspects and symbols used in the ceremonies. Shango wears his crown and his typical skirt, that moves like flames of fire while dancing. In his hand he has the double-axe and is standing an a typical posture, blowing out air through his mouth, symbol for his inner fire, in Yoruba-language they call him "Elenu ina", what means "the one with a mouth full of fire". In his dance he often uses diagonal body lines.
