Bronze solid cold cast resin figurine of Yemaya, African Goddess of Water.
Yemaya is at first believed to appear as a river goddess of the Yoruba in Nigeria. She is a nature spirit, which is a powerful guardian spirit that reflects an important aspect of the God of the Ife region. When Yoruba people were hoarded and brought onto the slave ships as captives, they brought Yemaya with them, therefore becoming the Goddess of the Ocean. She is often depicted as a mermaid or simply a beautiful woman standing amidst the waves bringing comfort and inspiration to the people who are taken far away from their homelands. She represents the essence of motherhood and she is worshipped in many countries such as Brazil and Haiti.
