Mama Quilla is the Incan Moon goddess. Her name means ‘mother moon’. She was represented as a gold disc with a human face on it.

Mama Quilla is revered as the guardian of marriage and the protector of married women. So, she was very special to the wives of the Inca men.

Many myths surround Mama Quilla. It is believed that she cried tears of silver, and that a Lunar eclipse occurred when she was being attacked by an animal.

She was married to the sun God Inti but lived apart from him, ruling the night as he ruled the day. She is also revered as the regulator of feast days and the calendar.
