    Gabija (also known as Gabieta, Gabeta) is the goddess of fire and hearth in the Lithuanian mythology. She is the protector of home and family, provider of happiness and fertility.[1] Her name is derived from gaubti (to cover, to protect)[1] or from St. Agatha (Russian: Gafiya).[2] Gabija is only mentioned in a list of Lithuanian gods by Jan Łasicki (published in 1615) and later encountered in Lithuanian folklore.[2]

    Gabija could take zoomorphic forms of a cat, stork or rooster,[1] or she could appear as a woman clothed in red.[3] The fire of Gabija was greatly respected and cared for like a living creature. People would feed Gabija by offering bread and salt.[1] Fire had to be laid to bed women would cover charcoal with ashes every evening so that fire would not wander around.[1] Just as Gabija was the protector of the house, mother of the household was the protector of fire.[4] Sometimes a bowl of clean water would be left near the hearth so that Gabija could wash herself.[3] If angered, Gabija would "go for a walk" burning the house. Much folklore describes ill fate of those who offended Gabija by stomping, spitting, or urinating on fire.[

    You nailed it>>>

    Fire goddess because of the nice muzzle flash (the video doesn't show it but it is impressive).

    I was shooting at 50 yards on the rifle range so was taking some time to aim.
    I like to see good groupings more than just blow off a bunch of ammo anyway.
    Can't shoot it at the 25yard pistol range as they use steel angle for the target stands there, and 7.62x39 would certainly destroy it.
