    Ixchel of Fertility — As a mother goddess she was the inventor of sewing, and was portrayed as the Weaver of the World. As a wise crone she was the storm-bringer who transformed and cleansed the earth. Here she appears in her moon maiden aspect with her fecund rabbit companion. This traditional image of the highland Maya peoples of Guatemala is associated with crop (especially corn) fertility, and with safety for women during childbirth. —picture and text © 1996 JBL Statues (now called Sacred Source), original web page and text created by Tom Laudeman

    Ixchel World-Weaver — Mayan Goddess childbirth and healing. Here she sits entranced, accompanied by her companion the nest-weaver bird, dreaming out the warp and weft of the Great Fabric of Life upon her backstrap loom. She was worshipped throughout Mayan Yucatan as the Life giving Queen. The rite of passage into womanhood required fashioning such a clay image of Ixchel, traveling to the sacred Isle of Women (Isla Mujeres), and performing a ritualistic breaking of the image in her temple there. Ixchel is identical with Spider Woman, the Creatrix worshipped widely by North American native peoples. —picture and text © 1996 JBL Statues (now called Sacred Source), original web page and text created by Tom Laudeman

    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). She is the embodiment of power and healing which ancient cultures attributed to wise elder women. —picture and text © 1996 JBL Statues (now called Sacred Source), original web page and text created by Tom Laudeman
