Yoruban mythology: the Orishas

So here is some delectable eye-candy involving the Orishas, or Gods. These are beautiful! And on further investigation (involving reading the Wiki page for Orisha) I found that the various lineages of this religion still claim some 100 million adherents around the world.

The stories of the Orisha seem to be just as detailed and extensive as Greek mythology - the only difference being that nobody still worships Zeus. Fascinating.
