An Orisha is a spirit that reflects one of the manifestations of God in Africa's Yoruba religion. Many Orishas have found their way throughout the Americas via the Atlantic slave trade and are now expressed in practices as varied as Santeria, Candomble, Trinidad Orisha, and Oyotunji.

Yemaya is at first believed to appear as a river goddess of the Yoruba in Nigeria. She is a nature spirit or an Orishas, which is a powerful guardian spirit that reflects an important aspect of the God of the Ife religion. When Yoruba people were hoarded and brought onto the slave ships as captives, they brought Yemaya with them, therefore becoming the Goddess of the Ocean. She is often depicted as a mermaid or simply a beautiful woman standing amidst the waves, and she brings comfort and inspiration to the people who are taken far away from their homelands. She represents the essence of motherhood, and she is worshipped in many countries such as Brazil and Haiti and has various forms and cultural references around the world.

    This was one of three statues that I ordered. Magical Omaha reached out letting me know that one of the statues was on back order and communicated options of waiting or refund. I decided to wait and the very next day received a response stating that they were able to find one in the back room that they had overlooked. The statues arrived swiftly and without issue with carrier, and now sit in a small corner shrine in my home. Thank you so much to the Magical Omaha team for your exemplary service!
