Yemaya is depicted in Cuban Santeria as an example of how a queen should act. She is majestic yet not snobbish, exquisitely attired yet not gaudy, strong yet not strident. And she lovingly takes maternal care of all the children... Yemaya's dignified demeanor and motherly warmth gives comfort and solace to all Santeria practioners. Her place as a queen in het own right makes her one of the most important members of Santeria's Celestial Court.
