OSHUN the African Goddess of beauty, love, prosperity, order and fertility.
Oshun carved by Robyn Gordon
Her name is synonymous with transformation.
"She is widely loved, as She is known for healing the sick and bringing fertility and prosperity, and She especially watches over the poor and brings them what they need. As Orisha of love, Oshun is represented as a beautiful, charming and coquettish young woman".
Read more about her here and here.
Please bear with me .... I am labeling each image by Robyn Gordon because my work is being pinned without credit.
I have a Brazilian friend living in the states who knows her as Oxum. With the African diaspora Oshun was introduced to the Americas. Her name changes slightly from country to country but no matter where she is, she is loved and respected.
