Oyà de Francisca

Ink on white paper
42 x 29,7

I dedicate this drawing to all fighting women like my mother and my sister, my friends. Without the support of women we are nothing.

I celebrate the power of female  energy, combative and courageous, stable and wise.

Oyà is the Saint Barbara of the black people, the lady of lightning and winds. A warrior ready for any battles.
