Slavic, a divine figure symbolizing a female principle of youthfulness, beauty, mildness, vitality... She can be compared with the nymph in Greek mythology, or with Grace, in the Roman world. Anyway, in the ancient Vendic belief Živa pertained to the divine beings. It seems, that this divine figure was a legacy of very ancient times.
I'm going to visit Hallenbad Aqua Siwa, which is dedicated to the Goddess Ziva.
