Abstract pour painting using red, blue, silver, and white acrylic with pouring medium on 6x8 inch rectangle wood board, 10/20/2020
Made with Primal Flow Paints, a small family-owned business that I enjoy supporting. The more paintings I sell, the more I get to support their business. :)
Mini-painting will be finished with high gloss varnish (water-based) before shipping. The varnish provides brilliance to the painting, enhances the colors, and protects it from dust, UV rays, and deterioration so it can last for many years.
Inspired by the spirit energy of Ibeji, Orisha God of the Yoruba Tribe, part of the Santeria culture, religion and traditions of African diaspora. They are identified as the divine twins.
While there are two individuals when twins are born, the Ibeji is one orisha. Twins are considered sacred by birth among the Yoruba people. The Yoruba people have one of the world’s highest rates of twin birth (average world rate of twins is 0.5% where the Yoruba people have a 5% twin birth rate!). The Ibeji (and all twins for that matter) are considered one soul contained in two bodies; inextricably linked in life through destiny. The Ibeji are the orishas of joy, mischief, abundance and childish glee. They are the children of Chango and Oshun and are considered to be the first twins born on the Earth.
Place this painting on your altar or your sacred space in your home or office. Good for prayer and focused meditation.
