Triglav is a three-headed god in Polish mythology associated within some mythos as being the god of night and darkness, as well as Earth and sky. He is the highest god of all said oracles at Szczecin, Poland, were interpreted from the behavior of a black horse. He is veiled completely, so holy that he cannot see the evil deeds of men. He rarely appears around mortals, and is depicted as a three-headed man with bands of blindfolds over his eyes.
