Yemanjá is an imposing female deity associated with the ocean.  She is the ocean herself, the mother of all living things, a patron of women, guardian through childbirth, a protector of children.  She watches over the fishermen and sailors.  A poster depicting her and an altar of items associated with her were displayed in the lobby of Casa de Cultura where the Yemanjá Festival 2014 was held in Berkeley on March 15.
