In Latvian mythology
, Dievs is a complex figure; he is represented as leading the divine hierarchy
. Once upon a time, Dievs was considered father to all other gods, but oral history
and locally-written accounts reveal that Dievs is simply a foundation
: all other gods simply represent smaller aspects of him. Dievs may be primarily subdivided into Mara
, but I don't know why.
Sometimes he is depicted as the supreme god and the heavens, at other times, just a god, yo. He has an easy life. He lives on a farmstead in the heavens, called the Sky Mountain. He does not participate in farmwork. Sometimes he comes to earth to mess with the mortals and stuff.
