My 11th Inktober : Lasirèn, I really had to be careful with this one. I wanted her to be as gracious as possible, I had to put myself in her shoes, well her tail lol, anyway..
Lasirèn is the very essence of all natural aspects of water. She has been celebrated for centuries in African cultures as Mami Wata.
She is a balance between dark, divine, mysterious and angelic existence. Balancing her sisters (Erzulie Freda and Clairmesine) traits into a charming, feared, highly respected being.
Lasirèn provides material gifts, spiritual enlightenment, mental and emotional health to her worshippers. She is a symbol of fertility, of wealth and seduction.
It is said that if you find her comb, or you steal it. She will come at night, reclaiming it while gifting you with riches and will bless your children with beauty. •
