Ixchel Crone

Ixchel of Fertility As a mother goddess she was the inventor of sewing and was portrayed as the Weaver of the World. As a wise crone she was the storm-bringer who transformed and cleansed the earth. Here she appears in her moon maiden aspect with her fecund rabbit companion. This traditional image of the highland Maya peoples of Guatemala is associated with crop (especially corn) fertility, and with safety for women during childbirth.
