When she learns to talk, would she have two voices? what does she see with four eyes? these are the questions that stick in my brain and inspire drabbly dreams...

I wonder if all the eyes work? That would actually be quite an advantage.

ya know, the first thing i asked myself was 'two-faced indian baby? i wonder if they're going to think this one's a diety too.." and sure enough. they really toss the dietizations around over there. personally i think shredni vashtar is the most convincing of them.

I don't think they take the idea of deity the same way as it is taken in the various Western and Middle-Eastern traditions. Their gods are personifications of various aspects of the world, not necessarily beings who created or even control those aspects. According to my research (watching anime), you can deceive or injure Eastern gods without much more difficulty than doing the same to a human.

I just put in the second link, which has a better picture of her. She's pretty damn cute! It also says she blinks all four eyes in unison, and feeds with both mouths. I hope she doesn't develop complications. I would be curious to see how she grows up. also, i was kinda wondering... does she get two brains? or one?
