African Wax Print
STORY BEHIND THE PRINT
This print features the rich deep blues and warm golden yellows associated with the West African goddess Oshun. Most recently popularized in the opening scenes of Beyonce's Lemonade album, Oshun is the goddess of love, fertility, beauty and art. Oshun represents a universal feminine energy related to the Egyptian goddess Het-Heru (Hathor), the cow in the manger during the birth of Christ and Greek goddess Aphrodite. The print known as "Hibiscus" is also traditionally given as part of a wedding dowry in West Africa.
