BALTIC MYTHOLOGY

The Gods of Lithuania, Latvia & Prussia...

USINS

Baltic Fertility God

Also known as ŪSINŠ, DEWING-ISCHING, DEWING-USCHING

Latvian Fertility God specializing in bees and horses

He is an ancient Latvian deity. This one is not too bad. He looks after your horses and — as a bonus extra — will encourage your bees to produce honey.

For payment, he’ll settle for a humble brunch of bread, bacon and earth. Oh yes, and he finds rooster’s blood poured into a horse’s trough particularly delicious.
