Olokun of the Galaxy–Pants Dolls

Olokun of the Galaxy is a series of art and play figures and a book inspired by Olokun, a Yoruba spirit who governs the deepest part of the oceans. These figures are fashioned to honor indigenous water protectors and the Movement for Black Lives. This series takes Olokun from his/her earthly home to other oceans in the universe–including the waters beneath the ice of Europa, the methane lakes of Titan and to many exoplanets. Olokun of the Galaxy is a medaled hero and heroine, both matriarch and patriarch, a conduit for embrace, safety and regeneration. These are the first in my line of “pants dolls,” which are created from jeans and other reclaimed fabrics. The limited edition play dolls are still individually made art dolls but they do not include medals, jewelry or other small pieces and they are machine washable. These figures can sit on an easel-style metal stand, are comfy on a chair, couch or bed. but also have a loop for wall display.  To view Iverem’s art portfolio, which includes the Olokun figures, click here to go to that link on this website, www.legacyquiltsandart.com.
