I went in search of ideas of the female face of God...

Coatlicue, also known as Teteoinan (also transcribed Teteo Inan), "The Mother of Gods", is the Aztec goddess who gave birth to the moon, stars, and Huitzilochtli, the god of the sun and war. She is also known as Toci (Tocî, "our grandmother") and Cihuacoati (Cihuācōhuātl, "the lady of the serpent"), the patron of women who die in childbirth.
