Details of Yemaya Statue:
Yemaya springs from the Ocean with her long flowing hair and arms outstretched ready to grant you wishes.
Her breasts are modestly yet decoratively covered. Her arms and abdomen glow of bronze. The lower portion of her body is finished in fine detail of scales and fins. Gently highlighted in pink-lavenders from breast guards to scales and antiqued bronze overall - this is an exquisite piece of art to display.
When placed on your altar or any other appropriate place, Yemaya aids in bringing the love of life. Work with her and always be thankful to Yemaya as your life improves.
