The Devil Salome/Biblical
The Tower Oya/Yoruba
15 The Devil: This is not a traditional “Devil Card” image but an image of Salome dancing the Dance of Seven Veils. Note the head of John the Baptist dripping blood as Salome dances.
16 The Tower: “This is Oya, goddess of death and destruction. When she slashes with her machete, the fabric of reality is torn asunder; when she dances, she brings earthquakes and death; when she flicks her tongue, lightning darts from her mouth. She is the hurricane, sudden sweeping change and destruction, and you never see her face.”
