Sheela Na Gig is alive in Ireland & Britain where over 100 images of her are to be found carved into stone reliefs. She originated around 1100 AD. This fertility Goddess is portrayed as naked, with her hands opening her vulva in a gesture of birthing. Unlike many others, the Goddess Sheela Na Gig leaves no trace of a colourful, instructive legend, simply her stark image carved in stone tells us that the Sacred Feminine can never be destroyed.
