Mother Goddess - Máttaráhkká
A Mothers Day special - Mother Goddess - Máttaráhkká in Northern Europe
by Sami specialist Inga-Maria Mulk.

In this article I explore the meaning of the images scratched, engraved or painted on to rock surfaces in northern Fenno-Scandia. Some of these images have been interpreted as symbolic representations of the Earth Mother figure whose existence and agency underlie much of the pre-Christian world-view of the Sami people. Before examining the evidence of rock art representations, some background will be presented for this region and its inhabitants.
