Mary with Child

Matronae The Celtic Triple Mothers. An elaboration of the Mediterranean nursing goddess Iono Lucine, this threefold image shows the Mothers holding Baby, napkins and bath sponge. Each of them personifies nurturance, with bared right breast prepared to suckle. Throughout Celtic Gaul, Spain and Britain this Iono depiction was deeply reverenced by the peasantry. This image, dating from perhaps 100 AD, is from the Vertault region in France.
