Zaramama Goddess Of Grain Image
IN INCAN MYTHOLOGY, "ZARAMAMA" OR "MAMA ZARA" WAS THE GODDESS OF GRAIN. HER NAME MEANS "GRAIN MOTHER". SHE WAS ASSOCIATED WITH MAIZE AND WAS OCCASIONALLY INCARNATED IN HER OWN FIELDS IN THE FORM OF STRANGELY SHAPED EARS OF CORN OR EARS THAT JOINED IN MULTIPLE GROWTHS. IN FACT, WHEN THE MAIZE DEVELOPS IN MULTIPLE GROWTHS THAT LOOK LIKE THE HEAD AND LIMBS OF PEOPLE, THEY ARE DRESSED IN FIND CLOTHING AND TREATED AS THE MANIFESTATION OF THE LIVING ENERGY OF THIS GODDESS.

SOMETIMES THESE GODDESS IMAGES WERE MADE EVEN MORE LIKE "ZARAMAMA "BY BEING DRESSED AS HUMAN WOMEN IN A ROBE AND SHAWL WITH A SILVER CLASP. SOMETIMES, "ZARAMAMA" CAME TO EARTH IN CORNSTALKS WHICH WERE HUNG BY HER WORSHIPPERS ON WILLOW TREES; FESTIVE DANCES WERE HELD AROUND THE WILLOWS, THEN THE CORNSTALKS WERE BURNED, ASSURING A PLENTIFUL SUPPLY OF CORN.
