Slavic Abundance God

Also known as SVANDOVIT, SVANTETIT

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.
