The Sacred Art of the Ori is a Yoruba Ritual performed by artist Laolu wear he literally interprets your soul and destiny by drawing it on you.
“The Sacred Art of the Ori is a Spiritually Intimate Experience. It’s Cathartic for both me and my Muse. We Connect Our Minds, Bodies, and Souls on Higher Level. I paint their Spirit and Soul from that Connection. It Breathes Life into Us Both. ” — Laolu
Simply beautiful and divine!
UPDATE: Now Vanessa Hudgens is being accused of cultural appropriation? Don't we ALL copy from each other's cultural backgrounds. If the African people where on this earth first. Then how come so many cultural tribes have similar looks, in fashion, jewelry, dance, music, religion, art, facial paint, etc. Explain that to me? They moved out of African going east and expanded into Asia, Europe, Indonesia, South Pacific, Australia, Hawaii and to the America's. Changing here and there over time. Follow the road map of civilization and look at the ORIGINAL people of these lands.
Look at infusionofstyles pinterest page and see the similarities!
HINT: Look at the early depictions of Buddha he has African features! Is he a San descendant?
