Yemaya: Goddess of the Seas

Mother of the Seas

Yemaya is the ¬ęMother of the Seas¬Ľ and of all living beings, representing motherhood, fertility and the sea. According to legend, Yemaya gave birth to all the rivers of the world by releasing the waters from her womb, and from her were born many Orishas, or deities, representing different aspects of nature.

The figure of Yemay√° is visually striking, often depicted as a beautiful and robust dark-skinned woman, dressed in blue and white robes, with seven skirts representing the seven seas. Her cult includes offerings and ceremonies on the beach, where her devotees pay tribute to her with songs, dances, offerings of fruits and flowers. Throughout time, Yemaya has been a powerful symbol of connection between humans and nature.
