Oxum

Oxum

The River, its Lakes andFalls

Maternal Principle

Oxum is the Water that rules over fertility and maternity. It promotes the sprouting of the seeds and their growth, bringing abundance and prosperity – gold. As she emerges from Nanã’s spring, Oxum flows towards the ocean, forming lakes and waterfalls, carrying with her the fish and all other forms of life that find refuge in fresh waters.
