The Slavic Goddess Mokosh, who guards labour of woman and destiny, is recorded in the Primary Chronicle. The Goddess Mokosh is related to the moist, fruitful earth as well as manual labour like harvesting, shearing of sheep and weaving. Mokosh is the Mother Goddess who protects women in child-birth. Given that she is the mother of grain, Mokosh is also known as the Grain Mother. Her name has a number of different connotations, including dampness and wetness. She is also referred to as Matka and Mat Syra Zemlya, which respectively translate as Womb and Damp Mother Earth. According to tradition, when Mokosh is partnered with Perun, her dry, fiery traits triumph, and she changes into Ognyena. When coupled with Veles, she also develops a chilly, arid, and unfaithful personality. The divine conflict between Perun and Veles is a central Slavic tale. According to some sources, the conflict is brought on by kidnapping of Mokosh. In addition to statues of other important deities like Perun, Hors, Dabog, Stribog and Simargl, Vladimir the Great also built an idol of Mokosh, the sole female deity, in his Kiev temple. She was revered as a fertility force and the master of death as recently as the 19th century. Mokosh-stones, or breast-shaped boulders, which had control over the land and its inhabitants, were prayed to by worshippers. Mokosh is still revered as a strong life-giving force and a defender of women throughout Eastern Europe. She inspired the naming of villages. She appears in embroidered artwork as a woman with her hands up and two plough horses on either side of her.
