I’m back! I won’t guarantee that you’ll get posts daily again, but I’ll try not to take any more three-month breaks either. For a really great painting of today’s Goddess, see this artist’s website: http://www.alix-arts.com/pages/celtique_28.html
Arduinna is the Gaulish Goddess of the forest. The region of Western Europe known as the Ardennes shares her name, and was where her worship originated. Arduinna rode a wild boar through the forests, exacting a fine for animals killed there. When the Romans came to Gaul, she was associated with Diana, another forest Goddess. Arduinna’s name, which means “height,” is also seen as Ardwinna, Ardbinna, and Dea Arduinna.
