The Orichas Collection consists of the series of drawings by Cuban-born artist Alberto del Pozo of the deities of Afro-Cuban Santería. There are approximately 25 orichas in the Santería pantheon, 17 of which were depicted by del Pozo in this series. Santería refers to the Afro-Cuban practice of Lucumí or Regla de Ocha, a religious system originating with the African Yoruba people. The Orichas Collection includes the original pen, ink, and crayon illustrations.
