In what may well be the first book on an African religion written ‘from the inside’, Susanne Wenger here recounts her acquaintance with the Orisha-Yoruba gods and goddesses - after thirty years' residence in their Nigerian homeland. During that stay she has become a vehicle for the renovation and perpetuation of the religion's sacred images: icons, shrines and sacred groves. As a founder of the ‘New Sacred Art’ group in Oshogbo, she encouraged ritually inspired artisans to create their own shrine-abodes for the threatened but still living Orisha, in their own ancient forest sites.
