Benjamin A. Vierling, Memento Mori
To swing on the spiral of our Divinity and still be a human...
Obbatalá is the Orisha of creation, is the owner of all heads.
His name consists of all words,
Obbá-King, Ta-Shine on, Nla-Large which means everything.
Obbatalá—King and above all it is said that that it was Obbatala who sculpted the form of man in the vagina of women.
Obbatala is one of the oldest Orishas and said to have the same Oduduwa’o avatars, divided into male and female aspects. The oldest of all of the Obbatala’s are: the first marriage, composed by Oshalufon and Orisha Aye.
