The 16 primordial odu - Of the 256 possible letters than can come in traditional Yoruba divination, these 16 are the most... archetypical. This alphabet for divination spread all over Africa and into Asia and then to Europe.
"Yemoja", illustrated by Mikael Quites. Follow the artist here: https://facebook.com/mikael.quites ARTIST COMMENTARY: Yemoja, one of the main orishas of the Ifa religion, and Afro-Brazilian mysticism. I wanted to show a different version of her, inspired by the shapes and powers of the sea. I did this image for the wonderful "Contos de Orun Àiyé", a comic book project by Hugo Canuto.
