Svetovid

Svetovid, also known as Beli Vid, was a slavic god of war, fertility, fate and abundance, who was often compared to Perun.

Description

He was usually depicted as four headed god, with two looking back (past) and two forward (future), or one of each four heads looking into the four cardinal directions.

A statue portraying the god shows him with four heads, each one looking in a separate direction, a symbolic representation of the four directions of the compass, and also perhaps the four seasons of the year. Each face had a specific color. The northern face of this totem was white (hence White Ruthenia / Belarus and the White Sea), the western, red (hence Red Ruthenia), the southern, black (hence the Black Sea) and the eastern, green

His symbols are a white stallion, horn of plenty and a sword.
