In Yoruba mythology, Olorun is the Sky Father[?] (though occasionally androgynous or female), and a god of peace, purity and harmony. He is strongly associated with the color white, and controls everything that is white, such as bones, the brain and clouds. He is a primordial Orisha and father of Odudua and Obatala by his wife, Olokun.
