slavic statues, Bohemia, Moravia

Slavic Statues - we can find remarkable works of art in these territories dating all the way back to the Stone Age, for let us not forget the famous Willendorf Venus figurine or the statue of a bull from the Bull Rock Cave. The Celts, too, gifted the people of this land with their deft craftsmanship, as did the Slavs and other nations that passed through. We may assume that here, as in the lands of the Vikings, wood was the primary material used for sculptural work such as statues of the gods or mundane objects, but unfortunately, due to the nature of this material there are few works left for archaeologists to find. Bohemian and Moravian craftspeople honed their skills even during the Middle Ages, and we can enjoy their legacy of magnificent statues, bust portraits, decorative relief tiles and other luxurious goods.

MORANA, Slavic Goddess of death

Catalog number: SBH19

Your Price: 16.00 €

   

Morana is a part of a continuous cycle of life and death. She comes from nowhere and she’s not going anywhere, she has been present since the begining of time, and will be here as long as it exists, inextricably bonded to Svarog, as an antipode to the one who creates life... life that she would, when the time comes, take to the realm of the dead, world our ancestors - to Nav. Thus she does by sailing in the boat made of walnut tree, known as the tree of the dead in Slavic mythology.

Many rivers throughout the Slavic world (such as the Morava and Moravica) bear her name, because Morana reigns over rivers and seas.

Morana is also known as the Goddess of winter and she was expected with fear by the Slavs and her departure was celebrated loudly and joyfully, with many rituals – the most common one was making the straw puppet representing this goddess for the people to hit with sticks, throw into the water or burn and in this manner ritually destroy Winter. In March, another ritual connected to Morana would be performed. A procession of masked people would be organized to scare and chase away Morana.

Morana is probably the most powerful deity of all, but she is not evil ... She is the deity of inevitable, of what must be. There is no escape from her, and no one can question her power  - She likes warriors and farmers and all mankind, for we are all mortal, and all of us eventually end up in her arms.

PERUN, God of Thunder, Slavic Statue

Catalog number: SBH11

Your Price: 17.00 €

   

Perun is the mightiest of Slavic Gods, God of princess and knights, invincible warrior, the creator of the thunder and lightning. He maintains order in the Universe, gives victory in the battle and protects the state and the rulers. Of all the gods, he has the closest relationship with the mankind, and as a very powerful God he was honored even by non-Slavic people. He rules the natural phenomena such as rain, lightning, thunder, clouds, and hail and uses them to influence people's lives.  He is often linked to the cults of water, trees and stone. He often hits the oak tree with his lightning thus making it sacred, consecrated tree used for making idols – in this way, Perun gives his holy spirit to the oak tree and fills it with his divine strenght. In the simillar way, after the lightning had hit the rock, Slavs would wear parts of this „thunder stone“  as amulets. Dragons and fiery rooster, mythological creatures made under the influence of the fire cult were also concidered to be in some way connected to Perun.

Perun's weapons are rod, bow, arrows (lightnings) and axe which is his most significant mark – he shoots bad people and ghosts with it. He is represented as an eldrely man, with silver- gray hair and golden beard. It was believed that the thunder was, in fact, the sound of him riding his battle gig across the heavens. The gig was yoked by two winged stallions, a white one and a black one. Some Slavs believed that those were, in fact, billy goats.

Thursday is  the day dedicated to Perun. On that day, the priests  consecrate oak trees and light fires to protect  people from lightnings, they give oak twigs to believers and share blessings with the words: „May Perun help us!“ Young roosters, wild goats and bears are sacrificed to his honour. Perun's flower is the blue iris (perunika), as well as plants such as oak, sage, nettle, hazelnut, wheat and houseleek.

STRIBOG, Slavic God of the winds

Catalog number: SBH20

Your Price: 16.00 €

   

STRIBOG – THE GOD OF WINDS. Stribog is one of the supreme Gods of ancient Slavs. According to the legend, he was born from the sparks that occured when Svarog, the heavenly smith, hit the Alatir stone and from the wind he made with each swing of His hammer. That’s why Stribog is the God of winds, storms, good and bad weather. He controls weather, bringing cold or mild winds to the Slavs that worked on their fields, bringing health to people, animals and fields. Stribog is a winged, darting, sharp, moody, stern, angry, short-tempered and grumpy God. He is always on the move and he is everywhere, roars over open spaces and wriggles through the tiniest holes.

He is usually described as an old man with white hair and long beard, with a golden bow in His hand. Sometimes He had a hunter’s horn. He would use this horn to wake the winds, His grandchildren. Stribog lives far away from the other Gods, at the very end of Prav, but being the wind, He quickly reaches everywhere, especially if He is needed on the battlefield. He is brave and fearless warrior, along with Perun and Simargl in Svarog’s service. Nothing and no one can defend against its force. This is why many military leaders identify with Stribog and make Him their idol. Many princess would also build His idols and worship them. Stribog would walk around the battlefield to relieve with his breath the last living moments of the heroes that soaked the Slavic ground with their blood.
