Cerridwen är liksom Freja en fruktbarhets- och modersgudinna, men dessutom den poetiska ingivelsens gudinna. Två av hennes mest utmärkande drag är att hon vaktar över »the cauldron of Inspiration and Wisdom« (jag kan inte läsa keltisk primärlitteratur) och att hon har totemliknande inkarnationer som sugga och katta. Freja å sin sida har en guldborstig galt till riddjur och hennes vagn dras av ett kattspann.

Green Man. Composite stone capital in gothic style. The Green Man is a god or spirit of vegetation and plant growth, especially that of springtime. He is frequently found carved into medieval churches, with his face made from foliage or with leaves sprouting from his mouth.

“I know a 'face' where the wild thyme blows, Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows, Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine, With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine.” William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream
