Aja is an African Orisha, the spirit of the forest and the animals within it. In her forests she has plants with medicinal properties, and mix the herbs and roots together to find cures for the sick. Aja protects the forests, home to trees that support life for all living things by filtering air and water and providing oxygen. Aja is considered one of the rarest Earth Gods because she reveals herself to humans and not to harm or scare them, but to help and heal.
Aja - the tangential plane extends along the long axis of the tree. The tree cells are very long along this axis. They serve as channels for water and waste.
