COLLECTION OF YORUBA ORISHAS
Not to diss on European mythologies but can we seriously have some fuckin’ recognition that there are religions and mythologies that are not Greek or Norse. Why the fuck did I learn about the Greeks 6 times but we never fucking talked about Africa or even really the mythologies and beliefs of native peoples?
(Pssst from what group are these deities from?)
The Yoruba of western Africa.
We’ve been really digging into Yoruba culture in my Anthropology of Magic, Witchcraft and Religion class… what a gorgeous, many-layered mythology.
I will never not reblog this set. It’s fucking beautiful.
I like this a lot.
You always see things like the witch’s daughter. This is more interesting to me, since it’s rarely done!
Holy details, wow. WOW.
this is literally one of my favourite drawings ever
I think it’s going to become a thing: new issue of Hawkeye hits me in the feels (emotions jihadist!!), I use Art! to try to get over it.
ffs, Clint. More than this I shall not say, to avoid making this crazy-mad spoiler-y. Honestly, unless you just met Clint Barton yesterday, then you know damn and well that ‘ffs, Clint!’ is pretty much a default with him and therefore not a spoiler for this or any other issue.
(If you aren’t reading Fraction’s Hawkeye, you’re missing out on
a full-frontal assault to the heartcomics excellence)
