Artist's Description

Orixas are the celestial intermediaries between Oludumare and people. They are rooted in Yoruban culture, which was spread to the New World by enslaved Africans. Candomblé in Brazil, Santería in Cuba, Puerto Rico, and Dominican Republic, and Vodoun in Haiti have transmitted the religion remaining remarkably true to the source and simultaneously provide their own resourceful additions to accommodate their unique reality. Orixas are elemental forces that together create the universe and all realities we experience. Axé is the power, energy, or force present in all people and natural things. Axé manifests in all the diverse forms of energy we experience in the world.

Many recent scientific discoveries mirror the insights long discovered in Ifá. The messenger Exú can be seen as quantum energy: One who throwing a stone yesterday, kills a bird today. Ogum, the spirit of iron, helped to bring life to earth. Scientists are exploring now whether rusting iron deep in the ocean created the spark of organic life on earth. Oxala, with his chain from Heaven created land where there was only ocean- this chain that connects Heaven and Earth can be seen as the DNA double helix.

The orixas are here to give their energy to support people walking their path of spiritual evolution. Orixas weave a delicate balance with each other, creating harmony in the natural world, and within our lives if we learn how to communicate with them effectively. Let their energy be a presence of strength throughout the year as you grow spiritually in 2014.
