Blood drops

Still working on my Eshu theme.  The painting has gone well, as well as the twelve horns.  So I decided to add blood because it is a very strong image present in the myth.  In order to give each blood drop a shining sparkle, I’m making use of cowry shells.  They represent wealth, and that’s something Eshu definitely likes.  The process is taking a lot of time; imagine gluing the beads one by one!
