Mokosh (Мокошь) was the East Slavic goddess of fertility, protector of women and jobs done by women, such as spinning. Her ancient idol was placed at the hill in Kiev by Prince Vladimir, next to the idol of Perun and other deities. In the northern Russia she is known as Mokusha, and depicted as a woman with big head and long arms who visits houses and looks over the spinners. Her cult was, judging from the toponyms, also present among Western Slavs.
