These three figures are often described as the Maiden, the Mother, and the Crone, each of which symbolizes both a separate stage in the female life cycle and a phase of the Moon, and often rules one of the realms of heavens, earth, and underworld. In various forms of Wicca, her masculine consort is the Horned God.
Celebrating the cycles of life, nature, and the seasons, this statue depicts the Celtic Danu the Triple Goddess of Tuatha De Danann. The Maiden is Spring, new beginnings, possibilities, and the waxing crescent moon. She stands holding a dove in her hands with flowers at her feet. The Mother is the bounty of the earth, summer fruition, and early harvest as well the full moon. She is rooted in the life-giving oak tree, seen above and behind the Goddesses, and depicted with a swollen belly for she is creation, fertility, and motherhood. The Crone is the waning crescent moon, seen at the end of the growth cycle when the leaves turn, and the final harvest. She is the sleeping earth in winter. She holds the wise owl in her hand and a cauldron lays at her feet. Intricately sculpted in cold cast bronze, a process that mixes bronze powder with resin, the finish has the look of authentic metal, and take notice of the colored effects that highlight this conceptual statue. It's a striking must-have piece rich with Celtic symbols perfect for anyone into nature religions.
