Orisha Gods in Digue dos Torrero Park Salvador (Bahia), Brazil Images Kalpana Image Archives - South America

All these images are from Digue dos Torrero park in Salvador, capital of the state of Bahia in Brazil. These images are from a visit to Salvador in 2010.

The Digue dos Torrero park in the old part of the city is famous for a lake and statues of Orisha gods. Orisha or Candomble are African religions brought to South America by Yoruba persons during the colonial period, who were sold as slaves in the "new world". I especially love the statues that look as if they are floating in the lake. You can read about Orisha in an old article that I had written many years ago.
