Oya (Dance of the Summoner I)

by Odera Igbokwe

“The empress of wind and sky,

Oya adorns herself in tempests

and greets souls at the gateway to the afterworld.”

/Oya Wemilloro e/

Oya (Dance of the Summoner I)

Acrylic on board.

12 x 16 + Frame

 


 

This portrait is part of my fantasy RPG world exploration.

I’ve been reimagining classic RPG archetypes (Knight, Mage, Archer, etc), which has lead to envisioning the Summons (or Final Fantasy-esque Espers/Eidolons/Aeons) of this world.

So for my first Every Day Original we have a portrait inspired by Oya, the Nigerian (Yoruba) Orisha of the winds.

Super excited to continue exploring the pantheon of nigerian-diasporic mythologies and how they can be transformed and alchemized into my own personal grimoire~!
