Ellamma is one of the gramadevatas in Southern India. Identified with Renuka, wife of Jamadagni, mother of Parasurama, Ellamma is represented in a sitting posture, with a red skin, a fiery face, and four arms and hands. If a poisonous serpent bites any one he calls on Ellamma for aid. Fishermen when in danger call on Ellamma and make vows to her.
