Łada, the slavic goddess of war.
She may also have another aspect, that i didn't take into account: [link]
Only when i was half done with the drawing i read that there probably was no such goddess, and that Gwiazda Poranna / Zorza (Morning Star, [link]
) was the goddess of war, to which the warriors would pray.
Well, I have a different concept for Morning Star, so this stays as Łada.
And please, remember that slavic pantheon [link]
is very complicated, probably each community, if not each Slav, had their own concept of supernatural things. It has been like this for ages and doesn't look like it's going to change
I'm sorry, even the full view doesn't allow to see all the details, like the lower belt plates -.-
Most of the patterns used were inspired by the findings from slavic and preslavic graves.
