I am currently in the process of migrating the content shared here to a series of new websites hosted at shirleytwofeathers.com.

As you explore this site, you may find links to a "page not found" instead of something cool and magickal. For this I apologize. I am very working hard behind the scenes to restore those pages along with a link to their homes on my new website where they can be viewed in full.

The Dragon Goddess of Borneo

Elements: Earth, Water

The Dragon Goddess of Borneo protects the living and guards the dead, guiding them to the next realm. She is the preeminent goddess of the Dayak, the indigenous people of Borneo. Her image is ubiquitous in Dayak culture, appearing on everything from baby carriers to funerary monuments. Dragon imagery is incorporated into traditional architecture so that she serves as a personal home guardian.

The Dragon Goddess is the source of agricultural and personal fertility. She commands thunder and lightning. Her consort and male counterpart is the Rhinoceros Hornbill, among the largest hornbills and now an endangered species. This hornbill rules the Upper World while the Dragon Goddess rules the Underworld. Together they preside over a Tree of Life, linking the realms.
