Sažetak
Two unique figurative representations of the mythical Baba – from Grobnik and Gračišće, Croatia – are discussed in this paper. They are the only ones in figurative form found until today. The author introduces a newly discovered figurative representation of the mythical Baba in St. Mary's church in Gračišće, Istria. It is a drawing of a fat old woman accompanied by an inscription written in Gothic Latin letters that reads Stara Baba Vukoša/Old Baba Vukoša. Contrary to the opinion that this is a sarcastic comment about some fat woman from Gračišće, it has for the first time been placed and interpreted in a mythological context. In the inscription of Stara Baba Vukoša the author reveals the well known connection of the Baba with the supreme Proto-Slavic goddess Mokoš, as well as with Mati syra zeml’a/Damp Mother Earth, the oldest deity in Slavic mythology. On the basis of several indicators discussed in the paper, the author concludes that the drawing of a fat woman, accompanied by this inscription, must have been inscribed into still wet plaster by some infertile woman, or a woman in need who, having preserved the "old faith", still in the 15th century prayed for help (also) to the pagan goddess Mokoš (i.e. the primal goddess Mati syra zeml’a/Damp Mother Earth) in the votive church dedicated to the Virgin Mary, the most common Christian substitute for Mokoš.
