Throne for Yemaya

Throne for Yemaya

Throne for Yemaya, Ocha house of Alfredo Calvo, Matanzas, Cuba, July 2003. This throne for Yemaya was made for someone who was visiting from the US and playing for his Yemaya at Alfredo Calvo’s home. The throne was placed in front of Alfredo’s Orishas, thereby honoring them as well. Fabrics were layered one over another to imitate the waves of Yemaya’s ocean, from lightest to darkest.
