Goddess Symbols
and Sacred Objects
of Rhiannon


Goddess symbols, individualized for each goddess, were incorporated into the worship of the ancient goddesses, were often worn as jewelry, and also used in the household decor as talismans to seek the goddesses special gifts, blessings, or protection.  A large number of goddess symbols have survived in statuary and other works of art.

Many of the goddess symbols come from the legends surrounding a specific goddess and were "characters" in her story. Other goddess symbols  were derived from the rituals used  in the ancient rites of worship of these pagan goddesses.

Rhiannon is often represented by symbols associated with her astonishing "other-worldliness".  It is not surprizing that many of our icons representing the enduring beauty and simple goodness   are derived from the ancient goddess symbols of Rhiannon.
