Sarahkka Goddess of Giving Birth Protector of Women Original Painting
In myths of the Saami people in Lapland goddess Sarahkka is part of a group of three goddess; Sarahkka, Juksakka and Uksakka. They are all daughters of Madderahkka, the goddess of the earth. Juksahkka is the goddess of hunt and protector of boys, Uksakka is the guardian of doors and entries and protector of childhood.
Sarahkka is the protector goddess of women and girls and goddess of giving birth and midwifes. Pregnant mothers honored her by leaving her porridge as sacrifice and when was time to deliver the baby midwives invoked Sarahkka to protect the child and the mother.
I have Saami ancestry and I greatly enjoy painting characters from the myths of the Saami´s. For this painting I used different techniques to create textures. I also did lots of research on the baby´s cradle. It is called "komsio" and it has traditional Saami weaving.
Painted completely with watercolors and acrylics on acid-free watercolor paper.
