King Of The Sea by adamVilla King Of The Sea by adamVilla
I dream of being king of the sea, to be living both above and under the water, powerful and unique.

In Yoruba culture (Nigeria), this piece would depict Orisa Olokun, god of the deepest ocean. Orisa Yemonja would be the goddess of the ocean closer to the surface. You've chosen to present your subject as a dark god. Very beautiful and surprising for this site.

If you do, just know that all the Orisas have their own color(s). Orisa Yemonja's colors are blue and white. The best description of Yemonja I've found is here:

I'll look forward to your interpretation. If it's anything like your ocean god, I'm sure it'll be impressive.
