Beautiful painting by Zeng Hao! Green Tara - originally a Hindu goddess and later adopted by some forms of Buddhism. She is known as the mother of liberation, a protectress, an obstacle remover, and an earth mother.
Ixcacao is the Mayan Goddess of the Cacao tree and the chocolate that is made from the the fruit of that tree. She had humble, but honorable origins as an ancient fertility goddess. She was an Earth Goddess in a matriarchal society where women gathered the crops and saw to it that everyone was fed. Banishing hunger and providing for the safety and security of Her people was Her Divine responsibility.
