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.

I can't really tell you why, but this picture really resonates with me.  Very well done.

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 :(
