In February, Yemanjá has its own day in Brazil. It´s a very special day for the people of Salvador of Bahia. They go to the shore (specially to Rio Vermelho) and offer the Sea Goddess: flowers, perfumes, fruit.. I was very lucky to live this day and share this unique experience and energy there. In this painting you can see how some bahianas carry some colorful, decorated baskets filled with several presents for Yemanjá. Many of them go barefoot on the rocks and dressed in white and blue, the Goddess´s colors.

En febrero, Yemanjá tiene su día particular en Brasil. Es un día muy especial para las gentes de Salvador de Bahía que se acercan a las costas (sobretodo en Rio Vermelho) a ofrecer a la Diosa del Mar: flores, perfumes, fruta… Fui muy afortunada en poder disfrutar esa experiencia y energía única allí. En esta pintura se puede apreciar como algunas bahianas cargan con cestos decorados en diferentes colores y llenos de ofrendas para la Yemanjá. Muchas van descalzas por las rocas y visten de blanco y azul que son los colores de esta Diosa.
