QUEEN OF THE WHITE CLOTH  //  After reflecting on my brief time as an iyawo and writing “Wearing White,” I started coming across so many breathtaking photos of Santeras and aborishas wearing all white with their elekes. It is unlikely that they are iyawos because you’re not allowed to have your photo taken at that time, but regardless we do often wear white like this in Lucumí tradition and these images capture so much of its beauty and power.
