Warrior Goddesses

ShadowLight Warrior-GoddessThe Warrior Goddesses stand up for their beliefs; they are the ultimate personification of the strong woman or warrior archetype.   I wanted to explore this aspect of the Goddess as I was born in Norfolk, an area of Britain with a long history of warrior woman. Where Boudicca the Queen of the Iceni tribe, battled against the invading Romans after they had raped her daughters.  According to the Roman historian Dio Cassius Boudicca made offerings to the Goddess Andraste. Traditionally however, in most cultures around the world, woman did not play an active role on the battlefield yet paradoxically there are numerous warrior goddesses. They reflect the many different faces of war from the pointless death and destruction of war to the glories of victory.
