The most ancient and best-known deity of the Celts was the great mother goddess, who embodied the earth and represented fertility, abundance, and regeneration. She was the mother of the gods and the first ancestor of the people. The Celts were deeply concerned with the command of the female powers in both their aspects — the Celtic goddess could be a loving nurturer and provider, but she was also a violent warrior and a cruel enchantress.
