Unisex Jersey Short Sleeve Tee Elegguá Orisha t shirt
Icons are images that have the power to represent with a few simple traits, an entire chain of data that our brain processes and elaborates when it sees the corresponding icon represented.
This t shirt represents the Icon of the orisha god Eleggua.
Orishas are deities of the Yoruba religion who are believed to have acted as intermediaries between the gods and men. The Yoruba religion has its origins in West Africa. Much of their believers were used as slaves in the Americas, and were forbidden to have a belief of their own, for this reason Africans disguised their gods as saints of the Christian religion. But when freedom came, these ancient forces that had never died, flourished vigorously, not only in communities of African origin, but everywhere in the world.
Elegguá owns the roads and destiny. Is the one who opens or closes the path of life, prosperity, luck, happiness or misfortune and can even determine about the influences of other orishas; he is very naughty and his name means "the prince messenger". He's a being who's part of "the first" and he's a warrior. He is one of the beings who possesses the most authoritarian power over other orishas. Almost all orichas by obligation must respect Eleggua, and can be associated with a benevolent or evil figure. It might seem strange that such a powerful and feared orisha, first to be invoked in every ceremony and last to leave , is represented as a child. The ancient African tradition through its wisdom, is telling us that fate is like a child: unpredictable. The same fait that governs us all and that cannot be avoided but only governed through the agreement between him and our will.
