OSHUN and the TREE OF LIFE
Hand carved, Australian Black Jade Stone.
OSHUN is a deity of the Yaruba people in South Western Nigeria. This Goddess is associated with water, fertility, purity, love and sensuality.
This is a combination of two ancient and iconic symbols, the curvacious female and the Tree of Life.
The depiction of the female form dates back to Venus and the Palaeolithic Period. Feminine characteristics were given special prominence, the strong emphasis on the anatomical zones that relate to bearing and nourishing of children, that convey the idea of female fertility.
OSHUN and the TREE OF LIFE can be worn as a symbol of fertility, of eternal life and the afterlife. It can also just be worn because it is a wonderfully tactile piece that looks fabulous and feels marvellous in the hand!
We ship OSHUN to you on a hand plaited cosmos grey and black cord, lovingly packaged in a kete pouch.
