Orisa OSUN AND her BRASS

SHARE
THE INTERESTING ASSOCIATION OF OSUN AND BRASS 


Fans made of different materials, but most especially Brass (Idẹ) are some of the objects most closely connected to or associated with Ọ̀ṣun.



 The brass is cast into bells (Aja), swords, fans, hair pins, ladles, rattles, animal motifs such as crocodiles, trinkets, bowls, and combs (Òòyà) which either adorn the adherents or used for other functional aesthetics. 

In Yoruba godlore, although Obalufon is credited with gifting humanity with Glass & Brass while Olokun gifted humanity with beads & corals, the precious alloy is most closely associated with Osun, who is often depicted carrying a brass fan in one hand and a brass machete in the other. 



The brass fan often accompanied by a mirror portrays her cool, beauty (almost bordering on vanity), motherly, nurturing side while the Machete/cutlass appropriately depicts the fiery warrior goddess that Osun can often be. 

Little wonder that Osun can not be fully appreciated nor well described without the mentio of her precious brass, Idẹ!
