Triglav is a God with distinguished features of a warrior, protector of the Earth, Heavens and Hades. His strength comes from the three deities he consists of – Svarog, Perun and Svetovid. His attributes are a sword, a spear, a saddle, a horn and a barrel. It was believed that his spear has magical powers and that it brings safety and victory to the tribe.
At the temples dedicated to Triglav, his statues were clothed with garments that the priest would sometimes put on. A huge sword dominated statues of Triglav, symbolizing his great strength. During the holy days, Triglav's ceremonial horse, tall fiery black horse was used for divination and prophecy. During christianization Triglav’s three heads were explained as the Trinity and by doing so, in some parts, they put him on a throne of supreme deity.
