maniya

[ARTIST]: This month I’m doing each day a drawing of Evil/Spooky/Darkness. So I thought about a dark version of Amira. In Pre-Islamic tradition, there is a Goddess of Death named Manat or Maniya (I prefer Maniya). More or less she’s like the Grim Reaper, bringing Souls whose time has come and protects the sleeping dead, cursing those who intrude upon their graves. Generally, she’s seen holding out a cup, of what I don’t know. Perhaps Maniya here (pony Maniya), holds a cup of coffee (OF DEATH)?
