flesh of flesh

In my project, I explore the myths and traditions of

the Slavs associated with the land.

Slavic peoples especially revered the goddess of

the EARTH. They treated her as a living breathing creature,

as a nurse, as a real mother.

She was worshiped and treated with care.

Earth is the great womb that gives birth to everything connected with earthly life. From the earth, according to many legends, the human body is created. There it goes after death.

I feel like a part of this culture. The culture in which mother earth breathes, helps and takes away.I would like to remind this connection.
