Behind the grandiose mythologies and powers of many deities looms a forbidding and formless entity: the primal earth. Myths reveal that the goddesses of old called upon her in their prayers. No human today is capable of reaching this being. She is variously called the Three, Six, Nine, or One Hundred Twenty Four Earths.
She is not usually pictured, but a simple clod of earth, sometimes blood-drenched, is used to represent her in ceremonies.
