Explore Leila Penn’s depictions of the deities who reign over the Central Mountains, and the sacrificial methods used to summon them.
Be stunned by the beauty of the great deity, Warrior Net. Her notable thin waste, panther markings and glistening white teeth exemplify this. The theory is that her presence will allow those who summon her to gain stronger fertility and the promise of the birth of a baby girl.
Be fearful of the staggering appearance of the mighty Highhorse Reptile. In appearance he has two heads with watchful eyes. He hoards the power to control stinging insects.
Our journey ends with the great deity, Within Babe. In his appearance he holds snakes close to his body. Despite his appearance, he is a very peaceful deity, whose purpose it is to rid the human world of darkness and fill the lands with light.
