In neo-Pagan witchcraft the God and Goddess are the divine forces and the very essence of the craft, they are the Great Father and Great Mother whose limitless energy brings forth all life. They embody the living biosphere of the planet and the forces of the elements; they are the creators and destroyers. She, The Goddess, is the Queen of Heaven, she is the moon, the source of magical power; she is emotion, intuition and the pyschic faculty. He, The God, is the sun, the source of masculine energy; he is the raw force, wisdom and law.
Ixchel Goddess Statue
Ixchel is the world-weaver, Mayan Goddess of childbirth and healing. In this statue she sits entranced, accompanied by her companion the nest-weaver bird, dreaming out the warp and weft of the Great Fabric of Life upon her backstrap loom. She was worshipped throughout the Mayan Yucatan as the Life-Giving Queen.
The rite of passage into womanhood required fashioning such a clay statue of Ixchel, traveling to the sacred Isle of Women (Isla Mujeres) and performing a ritualistic breaking of the image in her temple there. Ixchel can be compared to Spider Woman, the Creatrix worshiped widely by North American native peoples.
5 inches by 6 inches, crafted in resin with a silver/pink color finish.
