A Prayer to Oya

The full website painting of Oya. In the foreground, Oya, the brown-skinned goddess of the Niger River, stands with her back facing us. Her face turned, she looks over her left shoulder at us. She is wearing a dark red head wrap and tunic , gold necklaces and a gold armband. Her tunic blows in the wind while storm clouds and lightning hover in the background. She looks fiercely into the distance
