This magnet features Taino Goddess Atabey.
Atabey is the fertility deity of the Taino people. She is associated with fertility, pregnancy, and childbirth. She is considered to be the mother of the clear spring water, and protector of women in labor.
She represents the eternal, invisible, and supreme creator of everything.
She is the Mother of Yucahu Vagua Maorocoti, which means white yuca, and is as powerful as the sea and the mountains. She was honored in an important yearly festival.
She is most commonly depicted in the birthing position, representing a nurturing maternal figure. Taino women would call upon her to watch over them during childbirth.
The apparent association of the goddess associated with childbirth with bones of the dead may be interpreted as evidence that the Taino understood the role of death in birth, fertility and the re-creation of life.
