1 of 2 Art Nouveau pieces done for a very dear friend!
She asked if I could create renditions of the Orisha Yemaya and Orisha Oshun/Ibu Añya which was a huge honour. It's not very often I get commissioned for this particular subject matter, so I was thrilled~

She really loved the end result and so do I! Did a lot differently than usual with my art nouveau styled pieces and I really enjoy the way they turn out, I might have to play around a bit. :D

This is such a beautiful altar piece! The waves flow and swirl while She's so strong and centered. It's a very clear depiction of Yemaya's power!
