Young Oshun Statue
Oshun, the Yoruban Goddess of love, delights in the creation of beauty and art, sensual delights and self-adornment.
Originally, Oshun was named after the river that bears her name.
She actually was the embodiment of the river, and to this river came the Yoruba people of Nigeria, one of whom was a princess. The princess jumped into the river and drowned, but soon after the funeral she reappeared wearing gorgeous garments given to her by Oshun.
Oshun's chief festival commemorates this event and still takes place today in Nigeria.
