PERIBORIWA

South American Moon Goddess

Moon Goddess

Forget love and romance. This is blood on the Moon.

She was hit with an arrow and her blood spilled down to Earth. Each drop turned into a member of the Yanomami people, which is how they account for their somewhat fierce and bloodthirsty nature.

PERIBORIWA is the moonlight of aggression, inspiring moonlight raids by fierce warriors. She’s also — we guess — the moonlight symbol of female menstruation.
