Mawu, African Goddess Of The Moon by Shella Goh| Mawu, African Goddess Of The Moon And here she is, the muse for my necklace of the same name. In Dahomey (West African) mythology, Mawu is a creator goddess, associated with the sun and moon. After creating the earth and all life and everything else on it, Mawu became concerned that it might be too heavy, so she asked the primeval serpent, Aido Hwedo, to curl up beneath the earth and hold it up in the sky.
