Does it rappresent Mokosh perhaps?
Reply

Oh yes indeed, this is Mokosh (Makosh), but I have made one mistake in the embroidery - as far as I think (I might be wrong) Mokosh would have her hands raised to the sky (and the two horses and her "bodyguards" on the side). What I actually did here is that I accidentally put Lada (or a symbol that would usually be representing Lada) into the embroidery.

I'm not sure you know! Because the "maiden" (so, Lada in this case) is often rappresented with the hands raised to the sky. The raised hands rappresent the potential energy of the spring, the calling of the rain that will fertilize the soil.
Lifted hands, on the other hand, would rappresent the water pouring into the ground (into the womb of the Mother), the concentration on the seed itself growing in the mother's womb, the Birth itself.. so I guess that lifted hands, like the ones that you designed, are actually the ones of Mokosh.
That's what I know, but I'm still trying to find some more information about the deep meanings of slavic embroidery.. so.. the road is really long XD

Beautiful work! Reminds me of some stranded-color knitting patterns I've seen. :)
