SONG: AE charm (24.33g), CCH-515, 43mm, pictorial charm with Doumu and her nine children, Fine, RR. Doumu, often entitled with the honorific Tianhou ("Queen of Heaven") is the heavenly goddess portrayed as the mother of the Big Dipper (Great Chariot), whose seven stars in addition to two invisible ones are conceived as her sons, the Jiuhuangshen ("Nine God-Kings"), themselves regarded as the ninefold manifestation of Jiuhuangdadi ("Great Deity of the Nine Kings") or Doufu ("Father of the Great Chariot"), another name of the God of Heaven. She is therefore both wife and mother of the God of Heaven. Likely cast in the Song or Yuan dynasties.
