  • Bakkalár
  • Útdráttur er á ensku

    This thesis investigates a detailed account in designing a creation myth with references to stories and traditions from Northern Mozambique. With collaboration with animist religions and the book God is a Black Woman, which is a graphical rendering a female deity. The author of this thesis wrote the book and the story concerns unity and separation of the people. This thesis brings an open understanding to which steps are required to accomplish a graphical rendering of a creation myth, from what to research, to why the use of such distinctive divine symbolism. The research material to cover the story and this dissertation is based on African symbolism, rituals, traditions, language, dressings, religion, facial features and music that is used in social events. African mythology covers a large area. With so many countries, regions, languages, tribes, cultures and imperialist crossovers that the sheer diversity of prevailing Gods would seem overwhelming. This thesis tries to capture the importance of representing divine spiritual beings by exploring myths, its credibility, and introduces the Sacred Feminine from African perspective. My understanding of the religion beliefs and spiritual identities of today, got me to the conclusion that, knowing our Spiritual stories and histories, can prevent repetition of our most catastrophic mistakes, and that may well happen if we sincerely so wish.
