THE MATRES are Celtic Goddesses of motherhood and fertility. They are usually depicted in groups of three, since the number three is a particularly favorable magical number. They are shown with one breast bare--as mothers to their followers, it was their duty to feed their worshippers. Often, they hold other symbols of nourishment, such as fruit, a cornucopia, or a loaf of bread. In some depictions, they hold babies, and were associated with fertility rites.
