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 Olokun.
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.
Olokun is the Orisha of the ocean, representing the sea in its most terrifying state. He owns the depths of the sea. He's androgynous, same man as woman. It is related to the deep secrets of life and death. It provides health, prosperity and material evolution. The depths of the sea is where he/she dwells and to him/her belong the riches of the sea. It is sometimes depicted as half man, half fish, although this is indefinite.
He is a powerful, terrible and extremely mysterious deity who lives chained in the depths of the sea, where in a cave has its palace surrounded by precious stones and ivory walls.
Obbatalá chained him to the bottom of the ocean, when he tried to kill humanity with the flood.
He is always depicted with a mask.
