Celtic Goddess, Ceridwen Plaque
by Maxine Miller, © 2006
Ceridwen, the Celtic Goddess of Knowledge and Creativity; Mother of Grain and Inspiration. She stirs a potent magic in her bottomless cauldron in this unique plaque. Cerridwen is a primal force of shadow and light, her magic draught bestows inspiration upon all who seek their muse.
Tending her cauldron of Inspiration and Wisdom, Cerridwen is a great Earth Goddess associated with the eternal cycle of Life, Death and Rebirth. We worship her during Summer and at Harvest times. Her totem animal is the white sow and she is a shapeshifter, able to be seen as a greyhound, an otter, a hawk, and a black hen.
She was mother to the great Celtic bard Taliesin. Her herbal potions bring forth initiation and transformation, just as tiny grains become vast fields of wheat that then transform into the bread of sustenance.
She measures 9 inches and is crafted of resin with a stone color finish. Each plaque includes a hook for convenient hanging.
