Goddess of Love, Oshun by Chantelligence Goddess of Love, Oshun by Chantelligence

Finally finished this beauty. :’) Here is the 3rd Mythological Goddess in my “Strong Women throughout Mythology” series. A Yoruba Goddess of Nigerian Mythology, Oshun, the goddess of love and marriage.

"Oshun, the Yoruban Goddess of love, delights in the creation of beauty and art, sensual delights and self-adornment. Her symbols are mirrors, jewelry, honey, golden silks and feather fans. Creativity in decorating home and temple is a way of honoring Oshun, who will bless any beautiful space created in Her honor. There is no object so common that Oshun will not appreciate more if it is made artistic and pleasing to the eye. Creativity in dress and self-adornment please her as well, and when Oshun is pleased, her blessings know no limits."
