Celtic Fertility Goddess

Primitive Goddess of Fertility in the British Isles

She’s lewd, rude, nude and very crude, displaying her most intimate parts to scare away death. She’s highly respected — and something of a feminist icon due to her empowering delight in exhibiting her body without shame.

Funny how things turn out. You may even find a representation of her on the outside of a British church, showing her wares to passers-by. Brass rubbings are strictly forbidden.
