This awesome sketch art card of Aja from African Mythology is drawn by the very talented artist Lynne Anderson for our Classic Mythology III trading card set.
Aja – This forest Goddess is honoured by the Yoruba people of Nigeria. Aja is an Orisha, the spirit of the forest, the animals within it and herbal healers. She is a patron of the forest and all the animals within it. She holds the secrets of botany, and is a master of potions and healing herbs. She passed this skill to the Yoruban people, who practice her craft to this very day.
Among the Yoruba, aja also refer to a “wild wind”. It’s believed that if someone is carried away by aja, and then returns, they become a powerful “jujuman” or (babalawo). The journey supposedly will have a duration of between 7 days to 3 months, and the person so carried is thought to have gone to the land of the dead or heaven (0run).
