Artio, Goddess of Wild Life, Transformation, and Abundance, is one of the more obscure goddesses in the Celtic pantheon. She is often shown with baskets of plenty and surrounded by animals. Artio is frequently depicted as a bear. Her name comes from the old Celtic word for bear, arth(e), which the Romans Latinized to Artos.

Artio, with the fierceness of a mother bear, protects wild animals and the natural world, bestowing the abundance of nature on us, her human children. She reminds us to stay calm and feel the power of the Earth and the unending love she provides.
