COLLECTION OF YORUBA ORISHAS
Not to diss on European mythologies but can we seriously have some fuckin’ recognition that there are religions and mythologies that are not Greek or Norse. Why the fuck did I learn about the Greeks 6 times but we never fucking talked about Africa or even really the mythologies and beliefs of native peoples?
(Pssst from what group are these deities from?)
The Yoruba of western Africa.
We’ve been really digging into Yoruba culture in my Anthropology of Magic, Witchcraft and Religion class… what a gorgeous, many-layered mythology.
I will never not reblog this set. It’s fucking beautiful.
