Mari and Sugaar Picture

The ancient Basque mythology is centered around the figure of the goddess Mari and her husband Sugaar (also called Maju). This mythology is considered a chthonic religion, because all its gods are on the ground or under it: the sky is only considered an empty corridor, through which the gods can travel. Mari and her consort Sugaar are considered the supreme gods.
Some aspects of Mari reminiscent of prehistoric deities that ruled the life, death and rebirth of the people, as well as natural phenomena. Mari is represented in different forms: as a woman, as an animal (vulture) and so on. Sugaar, however, takes the form of man or snake-dragon. Witch-like creatures, called sorginak, are at their service. They often have characteristics that are common to the pagan priestesses.
Mari has qualities as prophet and oracle. Among her key tasks there is preside over the drafting of laws and monitor compliance. She also governs all meteorological phenomena, which sometimes triggers to punish his subjects. To appease the anger of the goddess, the faithful perform a series of rites. Mari is associated with the moon, and her most common appellative is "Lady". Her cult, somehow, survived the persecutions of the Spanish Inquisition, the destruction and summary executions, carried out mainly between Zugarramurdi and Logroño, which were the most important cities of the cult.
