Obatala is the eldest Orisha and the father of all the Orishas; He created the world and the humanity that reside withing.  Obatala always dresses in white to reflect his spiritual purity.  White is therefore the most sacred color in Santeria because of its' representation of Obatala.  He acts as a protector for those who do not yet know their guardian Orisha, and encourages His believers to be patient and to handle matters with calm and reason.  Obatala watches over His believers and His duty is to maintain peace and restore balance to the world.

This statue is beautifully designed, sculpted, and handcrafted to the finest detail in cold cast metal (bronze/pewter) finish.

An Orisha is a spirit that reflects one of the manifestations of God in Africa's Yoruba religion.  Many Orishas have found their way throughout the Americas via the Atlantic Slave Trade and are now expressed in practices as varied as Santeria, Candomble, Trinidad Orisha, and Oyotunji.
