Slavic mythology.  Morana by Vasylina Slavic mythology.  Morana by Vasylina

  Morana was the Slavic goddess of winter and death.

 She usually appeared as an ugly old woman, but to those who showed no fear before her she appeared as a beautiful young girl.
  Morana was a long and cold winter, a winter that could bring death through famine and extreme cold, that could cause disease and massive death of the cattle. Her arrival was therefore always expected with fear and her departure was celebrated with a lot of noise and cheer.


Мара – богиня смерти, дочь Лады. Внешне Мара выглядит как высокая красивая девушка с черными волосами в красных одеждах. Мару нельзя назвать ни злой и ни доброй богиней. С одной стороны она дарует смерть, но в то же время она же дарует и жизнь.

The story of Morana 

Morana was a lovely girl who went out to the forest one day, and then the rain started. She took off her clothes and stood under a tree until rain shower stopped. Then, the devil saw she walked with dry clothes and wanted to know how she remained dry from the rain. She told him she would tell him only if he teaches her all his tricks. After some time, she learned his tricks and when she revealed how she stayed dry the devil got so furious he punished her, turning her into a bad entity everyone hates.
