Elaborately costumed, a dancer whirls in tribute to Iansã or Yansã, the energy in the air. She is the orixá, or "goddess" of wind and storms, venerated in the Candomblé religion, widely practiced in northeastern Brazil. The sky seems alive in this compelling portrait by Dera. Her cubist line suggests lightning.
Titled "Yansã" in Portuguese.
