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.
Holy shit, I just have to reshoot my hand-drawn animations that I fixed up and put em together in a demo-reel and this semester is pretty much over.
This hellish semester, it felt so long, and so much happened and I’m gonna be so happy when it’s over.
Oh man. For those whose prompts I haven’t posted from like last week, they’re alive, I just have one more final and then I can put them in a little sketch dump.
Oh and giveaway winners are being announced tonight after my homework and minibang drawing is done. They have been found woo!
