The Celtic Goddess Brigid represents light and wisdom, the hearth, the home and childbirth.  According to the legend she married Bres, an Irish king of a rival tribe in the hopes of uniting the people of Ireland and ending the war.  One of her sons died in the battle that continued despite her efforts to create peace.  

Here Brigid stands pregnant with the energy of life flowing from her.

You never understand life until it grows inside of you.
