FLOWER OF THE SUN LEGEND
“Eguzkilore” (literally: flower of the sun) is a flower with a
pronounced likeness to the sun which is placed by the door of farm and
other kinds of houses in order to protect them against evil spirits,
sorcerers, lamiak (mermaid- resembling creatures with bird’s legs), the
spirits of illness, storms and lightening. It’s not uncommon to find a
small wooden cross next to the flower as old and new intermingle with
one another in Basque symbolism.
The most similar thing I have
ever heard about a basque creation myth is that at the begining
everything was dark, so humans were not able to see and the bad spirits
were confortable . In consequence they asked Ama Lur (Mother Earth) for
help, so she had a child, Illaski, the moon, so the spirits saw the
light and they get frightened, but some of them get used to that, so
humans ask Ama Lur for more help, so he had another kid, Eki, the sun,
giving more light, and allmost all spirits disapeared, so Ama Lur gave
us a final help, Eguzkilore, "sun flower", so spirits go away from our
houses when they saw one of them in the entrance, still nowadays in some
areas we put them at doors willing for good luck
