Description


ṣ is without a doubt, the most fascinating, astute and unpredictable of all Yor b Orishas. Central to Yor b Orisha religion, ṣ is known as a divine messenger who is a mediator between man, the Orishas and the Supreme God Ol d mar - l run. He is also known as an instigator of intrigues and trickster Orisha. In this collection of tales, ṣ takes center stage, as the main protagonist, where the reader will experience two sides of this enigmatic Orisha: the good and the bad, which are presented in a spirited form. Tales of ṣ Yor b Divine Messenger and trickster Orisha are stories based on the African Yor b oral tradition of storytelling, which portrays the escapades and folly of this divine Orisha, utilizing a modern touch and simple language. ṣ , as the first Orisha, is well-worshipped and extremely respected in Yor b land because he is literally present in everything; in nature, in objects and in the physical human body. For this reason, ṣ is present in the majority of stories related to an infinite number of topics, as well as his relationship with the other Orishas in the Yor b pantheon. In this collection, Alex Cuoco presents 80 fascinating ṣ tales that are retold with great skill and rhythm, in which ṣ appears at his best, in various forms: as a trickster, messenger, instigator, officer and enforcer of the laws of run (Heaven), as well as moderator, master-punisher, advisor, mediator, helper and administrator. The variety of themes of these tales affords the reader an acquaintance with the good and mischievous aspects of ṣ . The reader will also experience ṣ 's sexual appetite and unusual sense of humor, which when combined, become a prominent aspect of ṣ 's explosive and surprising personality. In this manner, Tales of ṣ offers the reader the opportunity to gain a deeper knowledge and understanding of ṣ 's character and his divine ṣẹ (Power). This editio.
