"DALI "IS A RUSSIAN GODDESS FROM THE REGION OF GEORGIA. SHE HAS DOMINION OVER ALL THE HOOFED AND HORNED ANIMALS OF THE MOUNTAINS, THE DEER AND THE MOUNTAIN GOATS, AND THE HUNT. THESE ANIMALS ARE SACRED TO HER, AND THE PEOPLE WHO LIVED THERE HUNTED THEM FOR FOOD RESPECTED THAT FACT.

SHE WAS THOUGHT TO DWELL IN THE INACCESSIBLE REGIONS OF THE MOUNTAINS IN A CAVE OR A MOUNTAIN HUT WHERE SHE WOULD TEND AND MILK HER WILD FLOCK. SHE WAS A SHAPE-SHIFTER AND LIKED TO ASSUME THE FORM OF A MEMBER OF HER OWN FLOCK WHICH WOULD ALSO ATTRACT THE ATTENTION OF THE HUNTERS. ALTHOUGH SHE WAS SELDOM SEEN, SHE WAS DEPICTED AS A CAPTIVATING YOUNG WOMAN WHO WORE HER LONG GOLDEN HAIR IN BRAIDS. HER BEAUTY WAS BOTH IRRESISTIBLE AND TERRIBLE, AND HUNTERS WERE CAPTIVATED BY HER STRENGTH AND ETHEREAL BEAUTY WHENEVER SHE CHOSE TO BE SEEN.

BECAUSE SHE WAS A GODDESS OF THE HUNT, SHE SOMETIME CHOSE TO HAVE A ROMANTIC FLING WITH A MORTAL, AND WHENEVER A MAN BECAME HER LOVER, SHE GAVE HIM AN ARROW TIP OR A RING THAT BROUGHT HIM LUCK WITH THE HUNT, BUT IF HE WAS UNFAITHFUL TO HER, SHE WOULD TAKE CRUEL REVENGE. BUT, IT HAS BEEN SAID THAT THE PRICE FOR HER AFFECTION WAS HIGH FOR HER CHOSEN MAN WOULD NEVER BE ABLE TO SLEEP WITH A MORTAL WOMAN AGAIN.

HUNTERS MADE OFFERINGS TO" DALI "BEFORE A HUNT AND AFTERWARDS IF THEY WERE SUCCESSFUL.

Goddess Eka Abassi

Goddess Eka Abassi Image
"EKA ABASSI "IS A GODDESS OF THE IBIBIO PEOPLE OF AFRICA. HER NAME MEANS "THE FACE OF THE MOTHER. " SHE IS THE CREATOR OF LIFE, COMING BEFORE ALL EXISTENCE AND CREATING HUMANS. SHE IS THE 'GREAT MOTHER', FOR EKA ABASSI IS AT ONCE MOTHER AND CONSORT OF OBUMO, THE GOD OF THUNDER. AND BETWEEN HER AND THE OTHER GODS THERE IS A GREAT GULF FIXED. TO QUOTE THE IBIBIO PHRASE, SPOKEN IN HUSHED ACCENTS, AS WAS EVERY MENTION OF HER FOR SHE IS SO FAR BEYOND THEM ALL.

"SHE IS NOT AS THE OTHERS. SHE IT IS WHO DWELLS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WALL."

SHE MANIFESTS HERSELF IN THE UNHEWN STONES SET AMID SACRED WATERS WHICH ARE TO BE FOUND SCATTERED OVER THE LENGTH AND BREADTH OF THE LAND AND IN THE GREAT TREES, "THE GIVERS OF BABES." HER SUPREME ATTRIBUTE IS "BESTOWER OF FERTILITY," FOR IT IS FROM EKA ABASSI THAT ALL THINGS ARE BORN. BARREN WOMEN COME TO HER APPOINTED DWELLING PLACES TO PRAY THAT THEIR CURSE MAY BE TAKEN FROM THEM, WHILE THOSE WHOSE WEE ONES HAVE PASSED ON TO THE OTHERWORLD, LAY BEFORE HER CURLS SNIPPED OF THEIR LOVED ONES HAIR... PRAYING THAT SMALL FEET MAY SOON BE SET ONCE MORE UPON THE EARTH TO GLADDEN THE HEARTS OF PARENTS UNTIMELY DESERTED FOR

ALL BABIES BORN IN THIS PART OF THE WORLD ARE SENT BY HER.

"OLD WOMEN TELL THAT, AFTER SHOWING THE PEOPLE HOW, BY HONOURING EGGS AND OVAL STONES, AND MAKING SACRIFICE TO THE GREAT MOTHER, THE GIFT OF FRUITFULNESS MIGHT BE WON, THE MAGIC BIRD FLEW BACK TO ITS HOME IN THE SKY; WHENCE, WITH FOLDED WINGS, SOFT BROODING,"

"SHE STILL WATCHES OVER THE CHILDREN OF MEN."

OFFERINGS TO THIS GODDESS ARE ALWAYS LAID UPON ALTARS BUILT OF LOGS SET CROSSWISE IN ALTERNATE LAYERS ONE ATOP THE OTHER. WHEN LESS THAN BREAST HIGH, DRY TWIGS ARE PILED ABOVE AND UPON THESE THE BODY OF A WHITE HEN IS PLACED. IT MUST BE AN OLD HEN WHO HAS LAID MANY EGGS, BUT BY REASON OF AGE CAN LAY NO MORE. FIRE IS SET TO THE TWIGS AND THE WHOLE CONSUMED, FORMING A BURNT OFFERING "SWEET IN THE NOSTRILS OF EKA ABASSI."

"MORTALS CALL HER 'MOON' AND SOMETIMES, WHEN PEOPLE ARE SLEEPING, THE MOON-BIRD FLOATS DOWN FROM HER PLACE IN THE SKY AND PECKS UP GRAINS OR OTHER FOOD, WHICH SHE FINDS LYING ABOUT. SHE LOOKS ROUND TO SEE THAT ALL IS WELL WITH THE EARTH-FOLK, AND THAT THE TABU ON FOWLS AND EGGS IS STILL OBSERVED; FOR IN OUR TOWN NEITHER MAY BE EATEN, AND, WERE THIS COMMAND BROKEN, SUDDEN DEATH WOULD FALL UPON THE OFFENDER, BY MEANS OF THE GREAT JUJU ISU NDEMM. SHOULD THE HENS HAVE ANY COMPLAINT TO MAKE ON THIS SUBJECT THEY WOULD TELL THE MOON-BIRD, AND SHE WOULD BEAR THEIR PLAINT BEFORE EKA ABASSI, WHO WOULD NOT ONLY EXACT THE DEATH OF THE ACTUAL OFFENDERS, BUT WITHDRAW HER GIFT--THUS SENDING BARRENNESS UPON ALL THE COUNTRYSIDE."
