This image is from a series showing Afrocuban Orisha-dancers in action, with all the aspects and symbols used in the ceremonies.

Yemaya is the Orisha of the ocean and saltwater in Cuba and her colors are blue and white. The movement of her skirt in the dances is related to the movement of tidal waves and water, which can be very soft and gentle or sometimes stormy. Thus Yemaya is not only dancing in the water - she is the power of water herself! The perfect T-shirt for all the Oniyemaya and students of Afrocuban dance out there! 

The image is drawn after a photo of Afro-Cuban dancer Yusimi Moya Rodriguez and used with her permission. Thank you!
