The Golden woman — a mysterious Northern idol who knew how to move and kill their cry
In the heart of the mountains of the Northern Urals is a mysterious place — ridge man-Pupu-ner (Manpupuner). Mountain deities call it here nomadic herders of the peoples of Muncie.
And this name is not accidental. On a flat surface of the ridge towering seven quaint stone figures. One resembles a petrified woman, another of a lion, the third wise man with a raised hand.
Tourists from different cities of Russia in a hurry to see the famous Pechora «Boobs» and quickly pass lonely standing high conical mountain Koip. In Vogulsky Coup is drum. One of the legends of the Mansi people connects this node with its famous neighbors.
Once the seven giants-Samoyed went through the mountains and Siberia in order to destroy the Vogulsky people. When they climbed the ridge man-Pupu-ner, their leader-shaman saw a sacred Yura Voguls, Aligner. In horror threw the shaman his drum, which evolved into mount Coup, and he and his companions froze in fear p steel stone mugs.
But there is another legend that can be heard also from Muncie, but much less frequently. Conic hill looks CoIP from stone Boobs. But if you look at it from a small unnamed mountain range, located to the West, I could clearly see lying on the back of a woman with sharp facial features.
This is a fossilized samansa punished for trying to insult one of the oldest idols, once worshipped by all the peoples of the North, the Golden Baba. When the Golden idol moved through the stone belt of Ural mountains samaha, who considered herself his mistress, wanted to hold a Golden Woman. He shouted an idol, and died of fright all life for many miles around, and arrogant samaha fell back and turned to stone.
About the screams, which emits a Golden Woman, indicate not only the legends of the Mansi, but the memories of foreigners to Russia. Here, for example, wrote that the Italian Alexander Guagnini in 1578: «they also say that in the mountains next to this image I heard a sound and a loud roar like a trumpet.»
To her cries, we will return towards the end of the story, and yet on the other. It is considered that the Golden Woman — a pagan idol of the people inhabiting the vast territory from the Northern Dvina to the North-Western slopes of the Ural mountains. This territory at different times was called differently — Biarmia, Ugra land, great Perm.
The first mention of the so-called Golden Woman in historical documents appeared more than a thousand years ago in the Icelandic and Scandinavian sagas, telling of the Vikings for the Gold Woman in 820, 918 and 1023.
For a thousand years, the Golden Woman «made a journey» from the shores of the Northern Dvina river to the banks of the Obi. According to the researchers, she has done such a fantastic route because it still had time to save any from the plundering of the Normans, or from the militant Christian preachers. But where is the birthplace of idol, where he appeared in the ancient Biarmia, Yugra and Perm and where he disappeared to at the end of the XVI century, is unknown.
According to the article, «Where is she, gold?» Boris Vorobyov, all available descriptions of the idol down to the fact that he is «not a work of masters of the ancient Perm, because, firstly, their appearance is dramatically different from the pagan deities of the Northern Nations, to which belonged and Yugra, and the Voguls, ostiaks; and secondly, the creation of such a metal sculpture was impossible because of the lack of Ugra tribes appropriate technology» («Technology — youth», 1997, No. 11).
About the Golden Woman written many articles and books. The main sources accessed by those that are trying to unravel its mysteries, are the following: essay founder. The Roman Academy of Julius Pomponia Summer (1428-1497) «Comments on Flora», «treatise on the two Sarmatia» by Polish historian and geographer Matthew Miechowsky (1457-1523), «Notes on Muscovite Affairs» by the Austrian Baron, Sigmund von Herberstein (1486-1566). Russian documents first certificate Gold Woman contains in the St. Sophia chronicle, and it refers to 1398
It turns out that the Golden idol had many names: Jumala, Golden Chick, Golden chick, Kaltasy, Guanyin Copper Statue, the Golden lady, Golden Woman, Zlata Maya.
The appearance of the Golden Baba, too, the descriptions, are very different: the standing female statue, woman with cornucopia, Minerva, with a spear in hand, seated woman, very reminiscent of Madonna, with a child in her arms, sitting naked woman with the kid too.
In Russia, another written mention of it is the Novgorod chronicle 1538г. The chronicle says about the missionary activities of Stephen of Perm. Stefan went for the Perm land, destroyed ancient shrines and put in their place Christian churches. The record says that Stephen sowed in the land of Perm faith of Christ among the peoples who first worshipped animals, trees, water, fire and Golden Woman.
At the end of the XV century the Moscow Governor Semyon kurbski and Peter Bucket tried to find the Golden Woman. When it became known that the idol was moved to the Asian part of the continent, and a Bucket of Kurbsky led chetyrehchastnaya rati crossed the Urals and began to search his temples. It was taken much Ugra villages and searched many secret places, but neither idol nor temple treasure has been found.
In 1582, almost 100 years after the campaign Kurbsky and a Bucket, trace the main deity of the Permian-Ugra finally found. In the autumn of the same year, the Cossacks three days unsuccessfully stormed the so-called Demianski town in the lower reaches of the Irtysh.
When they have decided to postpone the offensive, announced a defector, who reported that the town is an idol made of pure gold. Hearing this, the leader of the Cossacks, Bogdan Bryazga ordered to continue the assault. The town was taken, but the trophy was not there: the Ministers of the idol managed to get out of the environment and carry it with you. Braga squad rushed on the trail of a vanished idol. In may 1583 the Cossacks were already on the Ob river, in the area called Belogorie.
There was a sacred aboriginal Ostyaks the temple of the Golden Baba protected a kind of spell, according to which every delinquent of the great goddess, had to die. In spite of all prohibitions, the Cossacks carefully searched the temple, but Golden Baba was never found. In some mysterious way, it again disappeared. Returning from a campaign, the Cossacks were ambushed and all were killed. Maybe the true curse?!
After some time missing from the Belogorye idol showed up in the basin of the river Konda, a tributary of the Irtysh. To his temple, as has happened before, pulled all the surrounding tribes. Deity were carrying rich offerings of sable skins and overseas fabrics purchased at the auction of the extensive Permian-Ugra.
At the beginning of the XVII century to find the Golden Woman tried missionary Grigory Novitsky. He gathered interesting information about the sanctuary, where they secretly kept the idol and where had the right to enter only the tribe’s chief and shaman. In addition to this information, Novitsky nothing more to learn failed.
One hundred years later the traces of the Golden Baba seems to be found on the river Northern Sosva, a tributary of OBS the left side. Under the assumption of modern scholars, the location of the idol pushed further on the Taimyr, Putorana mountains.
At the end of the twentieth century still attempts to find the Golden Woman. For the latest information about it date back to the summer of 1990 They were taken ethnographic expedition of the Institute of world literature Russian Academy of Sciences, visited the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous district. There still lives a small number of Northern Khanty, who, according to legend, was responsible for the integrity of the Golden Baba.
In 1933 in these parts began cannibalization. The NKVD arrested the shaman and wormed his way to the sanctuary. However, Khanty, protecting the Shrine, had security officers armed resistance. Killing four employees of the NKVD, which resulted in an immediate repression: practically all adult men of the clan were destroyed, and many children, women and old men died over the winter, because hunting and foraging, they were hardly the guns were confiscated. Even now, after so many years, survivors Khanty reluctant to talk about past events, and please do not call them names.
As for the Golden Baba, kept in the sanctuary, it disappeared. There is speculation that it melted. However, the members of the expedition told of one interesting fact: in the Museum of Khanty-Mansiysk has a lot of exhibits, which was not previously the Museum passport. As found by the expedition members, these things came from the warehouse of the local KGB Department. This raises another question: if the Golden Woman was not gold, is not whether it is currently in any special depositories?
About the same question, where did the gold statue in the land of Perm, opinions differed. Researcher of the history Biarmia Leonid Warm assumes that Golden statue could carry from a burning looted Rome to 410g. ad while attacking Ugric and ready. Some of them returned home to the Arctic ocean, and the ancient statue, brought from the distant southern city, became the idol of the Northern people.
The Supreme goddess Ugric peoples were known under different names. This ancestor of the human race endowed with newborn souls. Ugric peoples believed that souls sometimes take on the appearance of a beetle or lizard. In eseroline creature could turn itself of their divine lady. And this is a very remarkable fact of its «biography».
Wonderful tales describe Bazhov Mistress of Copper mountain. Mistress of the underground storerooms of the Urals appeared frequently before the eyes of the people in the form of a giant lizard with a retinue of colorful lizards.
The mistress appears to us primarily as the owner of copper ore and malachite. She wore the malachite dress, and her name was Malachitica. Golden idol of Baba, which was the fairy mistress of the Copper mountain was copper. Green dress appeared because time is covered with green copper oxide film. Short line
The ancient goddess of the mountains was thick with verdigris copper statue. It becomes clear why the chronicler omitted the material of the idol and did not call it the Golden Woman. In fairy tales we find the gold memory about the Russian God. In the Urals knew the Great Golden Snake, that is the Great Snake. Too lived under the ground and can assume the form of both snake and human. This creature had power over gold.
Today among inhabitants of Ural mountains lives the legend of Alpin-UE, a giant snake, still occasionally appearing «in public», a sort of Mansi Anaconda. Maybe it’s to do with the legend of the Golden Woman?
The key to unlocking the mysterious appearance give Bogovskii tales. In them a Golden Snake — Golden man with a beard, his retinue in such tight rings that «do not bend». He has green eyes, and on his head a cap with the «red Satriani». But it’s almost exactly the image of Osiris, the green-eyed!
Beard of the Egyptian God were removed in narrow tight beam. A beard was, and imitate him with the pharaohs. Suffice it to recall the famous mask of Tutankhamen with its Golden sarcophagus to understand how the ring looked on the beard of the Golden man. Hat with «red satorini»», pcent» — red and white crown of the United Egypt.
Wife and sister of Osiris was a green-eyed ISIS — goddess of fertility, water, magic, fidelity and love. She was a patron of lovers. Similarly, the Ural goddess — goddess of the waters, is closely related to the theme of love and fidelity.
So, the image of the green-eyed Mistress of Copper mountain dates back to ISIS? Today we can say looked like a copper statue, Egyptian. Remember that the Golden Woman was depicted as a Madonna. The image of the virgin with the infant Jesus was inspired by the sculptures of ISIS with the infant Horus. One of such the idols kept in the Hermitage. Nude ISIS sits and feeds her son breast. On the goddess’s head is a crown of snakes, a sun disk and cow horns.
Egyptian myths help to understand many things in our tales. For example, a magical green button. Mining Tanya gave her the Mistress of Copper mountain, through the gift of the girl talked with his patron. The Egyptian gods had a wonderful eye Uadzhet («green eye»). It also gave the owner protection. ISIS-Hathor was the guardian of the Eye and its implementation.
ISIS Egyptians themselves called Iset. Near Gamesgame originates Iset — «river ISIS»? This river Ural copper was reported in the forest TRANS-Urals. The name of the town Sysert, might have happened from the sistrum, the Egyptian musical instrument.
These Parallels are of great variety…
That Golden Woman — ISIS, said the old author Petrie (1620). But no one believed him. Too awesome it seemed the emergence of the Egyptian influences in Siberia… But that is another issue.
According to legend, metal Golden Woman allegedly fell from the sky. Maybe really down? This version of the origin of the Golden idol made several years ago, a UFO researcher Stanislav Ermakov. He believes that the Golden Woman is a robot-alien, for some reason, maybe because of the partial malfunction left on the Ground by its owners.
For some time Golden Woman could move, and with this its property is bound, Mansi legend about the «live» Golden idol. Then, it seems, the robot began to fail. First, he could still emit infrasound, and then finally turned into a Golden statue.
Where is now the idol is broken or a robot ? As the last refuge of the Golden Baba is traditionally called three remote corner of Russia: the lower reaches of the Ob river, the upper Irtysh area in the Kalbinskiy ridge and the impassable gorges of the Putorana mountains on the Taimyr Peninsula.
But maybe idol with a terrible killing on the spot the voice is much closer. And somewhere in the triangle between the mountains Koup, Otorten and Manija-Tump. This assumption is logical, if you believe the legend that Otorten «shouted» the Golden Woman.
Anyway, the hunt for the Golden Woman continues one of the priceless historical relic, others gold, and others — a storehouse of alien technology.
