African Goddess

Baga Goddess of Fertility

She looks after fertility for the Baga people. She’s very likely married to SOMTUP, her male counterpart, but we haven’t found the marriage certificate yet so we are hesitant to proclaim this as a fact. It’s never safe to presume anything when it comes to mythological marriages.
