Mokosh



A painting I did for a dear friend of mine who's going to have a baby in November; acrylic on canvas.

Mokosh, the primeval Slavic goddess. Believed to be the first strictly personified goddess in Russian history, Mokosh was a goddess of the waters of life, the earth, fertility and fate. Connected with female activities such as shearing, spinning and weaving. She is also known as a patroness of the house and women in general, so she’s also associated with birth.
