Description

“Yemanjà is the queen of the sea. And since water is the origin of life, Yemanjà is the mother of everything. On February 2, Brazilians gather on the beach to pay homage to her, bringing her all kinds of gifts in wicker baskets then pushed offshore into the sea. And so the sea fills up with flowers, dolls, jewels, ribbons, fabrics, perfumes, combs and soaps: Yemanjà is very vain and loves to surround herself with beautiful things.
Tradition tells that if the gifts return to shore, the queen has not appreciated them. But this never happens, and so the celebrations end with songs, dances and a lot of hope for the future.”
