In Polish mythology, Złota Baba is a goddess called "Golden Woman". She received many sacrifices and gave oracles, depicted in gold.[1]

Other names for her are Zhywa (Zywa) or Zhywie (Zywie) in Poland, Zaleta, Ježibaba, and Baba-Jedza (corresponding to the Russian Baba Yaga which, in turn, returned to Polish with an altered meaning as Baba Jaga). Places in Poland and Slovakia that their names from Złota Baba include Babia Gora, Babi Jar, or Babiec.[2]
