Some concepts of Slav mythology is in many respects similar to [Velesom] moraine (madder) - the goddess of the peace of the corpses (her name it has general root with the words “death” and “Moore”) and the fertility of the earth. The track of its cult in Slavs was outlined until recently. Madder was called straw effigy - the personification of the winter cold, which to the carnival they tore up and threw about on the fields so that those would give the abundant harvest. Ideas about the moraine as the tsarina of another peace, the bearer of goods, it was preserved also in the Russian fairy tales, where it is called by golden-haired tsarevna Maria [Morevnoy].
