Afterglow by UlaFish Afterglow by UlaFish
The woman is meant to be Ezili Freda, the voodoo Loa of beauty, love and lust. The man is Ogoun; Loa of battle and strength. He's just one of Ezili's many lovers, but I tend to think he'd be her favorite.

stunning. May I ask where you get the print from? do you use a database? (the flowers on the bedsheet I mean) or do you draw them yourself?

Where can I read more about this, and find those beautiful veves in your work. I am very interested in Vodun. Are you a practitioner, if you don't mind me asking? Do you have any legitimate websites that I can learn more about the loa? Are you going to make a deck of them?

I'm sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you. I'm an eclectic pagan, I do not practic vodun specifically or exclusively...I merely have a love and fascination for it and its Loa. I get most of my information from books...I recommend searching for them on Amazon and checking out the reviews. Wikipedia has some good information on the individual Loa, if not the actual practice of voodoo, as well. I would love to give you the names of specific reference books but they're all in storage right now :(

Super sexy. Gotta love a naked woman in heels. Ogoun looks like he's happy with the work he put in. Luv the muted colors by the way.

This picture is beautiful. I love that you've taken two god's not normally used and done them extremely well, though i would like to note (unless it's already been noted in which case ignore it) the only fair skinned god/dess is Mama Brigitte lol

:iconulafish:
UlaFish Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Incorrect. There are many fair-skinned goddesses in the Voodoo loa pantheon, keeping in mind that these gods are depicted in many ways by a few different cultures. Lasiren and Ezili Freda among them. I've had several complaints from practitioners for depicting too many of the voodoo loa as being dark skinned, actually.

By the way you were right, Maman Brigitte does have a Celtic origin! She is "descended" in a way from the triple goddess Brigid and Saint Brigid, the influence of indentured Irish and English servants brought to Haiti.

Is that the same as Maman Brigette? Married to Baron Samedi? Is it just different names? I'm wondering because my cousin is named after Brigette's celtic origin.

PS. Lovely!

No, Ezili Freda has many lovers, including the husbands of other loa. Brigitte is a different loa, and as you said, the wife of Baron Samedi :)
