La Ochún de Midialis

La Ochún de Midialis

Acrylic on Canvas, 24” X 18”, 2016

Midialis is ritual singer steeped in Perico’s local traditions. She invited me to see her altar for Ochún at la Sociedad Africa. She is pictured here holding her Ochún doll. In Cuba, dolls are often used to represent deities and are identified by their attributes, such as colors, accessories, and costumes.
