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.

Fucking mermaids EVERYWHERE tonight.

I spent a lot of time with Her today, what with prettying up how Her jewelry is stored and sprinkling Her perfume and dancing like a lunatic in front of the altar for a half an hour. In turn, She gave me the glorious ecstatic state that comes from dealing with the Lwa and it’s delicious and gives me a lot of energy.

However, if She’d like something specific beyond what I gave Her today, She needs to use Her words instead of consistently showing Herself to me from every possible angle. I don’t speak mermaid more than knowing that She is asking for attention and while She’s lovely, mermaids from every angle feels a bit Fatal Attraction-y.
