Rice Mother

Eastern pantheon — the generous one

The Rice Mother was discovered by the daughter of Shavaya, an early emperor of Kralorela. She provides her people with everything necessary for their culture, their cooking, and the worship of rice, their most important food.

She is usually illustrated as a short, extremely fat, grinning oriental woman sitting with her legs wrapped around a large jar of grain. A sacred centipede coils around one of her arms and she and her jar are mounted atop a divine eel-turtle.
