8.25 inches high Ganges Clay Statue
Dusty jade color finish.
Ixchel's hurricanes wash over the Earth and permit new growth, in the same way
that our tears of emotion reopen us to a sense of wholeness.
Pictured in this statue, she embodies the healing power that ancient cultures
attributed to wise elder women.
Ixchel Crone Storm Goddess of Healing and Transformation. Called Old Goddess
with the Tiger Claws by the Mayas, she is the personification of torrential
seasonal rains, which gush from her water pot. Her hurricanes cleanse the earth
and permit new growth.
The feathered serpent/turtle crown identifies her as patroness of fertility,
goddess of the moon and consort to Itzamna (the Sun God).
[From a Codex, c. 1650 CE.]
