The elegant temple was a popular tourist attraction, and many people flocked to see the abstract statue of a woman situated in the rear. They would pile offerings at its base, although few were aware of the reason why. Many believed they would receive a blessing of some sort, yet nothing could be further from the truth. Rather, if the offerings were to cease, then Mordia, sealed within the statue, would wreak havoc.

Mordia translates from Spanish as "bite, champ; nibble; corrode".
