These two minor gods appear as a hybrid of human and cow: they have hooves insted of hands and feet, cow’s heads (but human hair), and otherwise human bodies. They are said to be brother and sister (Goggo is the female and Ogmo the male).
They are the gods of clothing and fashion. Child-size statues of the two (but in adult proportions) stand outside every temple to them. As with other gods of particular trades, temples are only found in large towns and cities, although tailors in other areas may have shrines in their homes or workshops.
They are inevitably carved naked, and dressed in actual clothes. For a tailor to be chosen to clothe the statues indicates that they are the greatest at their trade in the area. Thus the clothes are provided free (and indeed it is said that tailors bribe the temple to receive this honour, or at least make generous offerings).
The skin, eyes and hair of the gods are painted to represent the current ideal of beauty. Likewise the god’s bodies are carved to conform to ideal types. Carving or painting the statues is a similar sign of status, though to a lesser extent, since representing the human form in art is the province of Averna (also the goddess of dancing and athletics). When this ideal is judged to have changed, the statues are replaced. Old statues have no ‘sacredness’, and are simply thrown away.
