Yemaya, Orisha Mayor 
Elio Vilva
(Trinidad, Cuba),
Acrylic on Canvas (24 x 11 1/2), 2008

Yemayá, Orisha mayor, madre de la vida y de todos los Orishas. Es la dueña de las aguas y representa al mar. Fue mujer de Babaluayé, de Orula y de Oggún. Le gusta cazar, chapear y manejar el machete. Es indomable y astuta, sus castigos son duros y su cólera es terrible, pero justiciera. En el Diloggún, habla en el Oddí (7). Su día es el sábado. Sus colores son el azul y blanco. Yemayá es amiga de la buena compañía y del xx. Es alegre y xx. Sincretiza con la Virgen de Regla. 

Yemayá, elder Orisha, mother of life and all the Orishas. She is the owner of the waters and represents the ocean. She was once the wife of Babaluayé, Orula and Oggúns. She likes to hunt and use a machete. She is indomitable and astute. Her punishments are harsh, her anger is terrible but just. In the Diloggún, she speaks in Oddí (7). Her day is Saturday. Her colours are blue and white. Yemayá is cheerful and loves good company. She is syncretized with the Virgen of Regla.

support daniel’s trip to Hawaii to participate in the YEMOYA International Artist Residency

I’ve been accepted to the YEMOYA international artist residency this summer in Hawaii! YEMOYA is a 3 week intensive program, combining artistic training with health and wellness practices, which fosters the collective holistic development of art makers from around the world who are emerging, mid-career or established. Participants get the opportunity to share artistic works, points of view, and growth in an intimate and nurturing setting under the mentorship of d’bi.young anitafrika. The program consists of one-to-one mentorship, group facilitation, community service, weekly presentations and a completion ceremony and presentation. We’ll be working under d’bi.young’s SORPLUSI Methodology. The 8 guiding principles of this framework are: Self-knowledge, Orality, Rhythm, Political Content and Context, Language, Urgency, Sacredness and Integrity.
