An ode to the everyday-ness of African Traditional Religion (ATR) worship. These cards use iconography presented in the day to day of the average spiritualist and black practitioner, from the use of religious tools, to incarnations of our deities, to even the symbolic use of animals. To a degree my purpose with this deck is to show appreciation for some of the tools and ideas we have come to learn in our traditions. It’s not a punchy dramatization — this is life.
Like Akamara, I draw on the influences of each ATR I have done personal research on as well as those I have been initiated into myself.
