SVENTOVIT
Also known as SVANDOVIT, SVANTETIT

A picture showing the legend of SVENTOVIT taken from our Slavic mythology archives. Illustration by Chas Saunders. Read the story below or search the index for more Slavic Gods, Slavic Goddesses, heroes, demons and monsters!

Godfather of Fruitfulness and Fertility.

He has four necks and four faces. Possibly even four bodies. His high priests are commanded to hold their breath when cleaning his temple, but that's hardly surprising as he keeps his horse there.

His statues have drinking horns (replenishable) and have four faces facing North, East, South and West.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Sventovit graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Sventovit movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites.

Visitors often email us asking about Sventovit statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Sventovit. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
