Ganga and Jamuna Mondal, were born in 1969 in India. These conjoined twins gained their nickname because they share an abdomen but have four arms and three legs. They tour with the “Dreamland Circus” and are married to one man. The twins, who share a stomach but have separate hearts, kidneys and livers, were born to an impoverished family near Kolkata, West Bengal. Their parents were unable to pay for medical attention and deserted them when they reached their teens, fearing they were a sign of God’s fury.
so in love with spider medicine, cannot stop researching on it. the four winds and four directions in medicine wheels and the infinity symbol, and how they weave webs in spirals. the ancient knowledge keeper, how grandmother spider is the keeper of language and geometric shapes, weaving the connections of past, present, future.
and together with the dragonfly totem pouch i got, i am in love.
(i think there’s a reason i love watching documentaries of sharks, spiders and snakes)
