Today is the Feast Day of Sankta Lucia, the superficially-christianized version of the Scandinavian Goddess of the Winter Solstice. I've blogged about her several times before on this date (check out my previous posts here, if you're interested).
For many years, I have been collecting statues and figurines of the Divine Feminine but have never found, or even seen, one of Sankta Lucia. But last year, my sister surprised me with a lovely, embossed, white porcelain statue of her for Christmas!
Standing about 10 inches high, Sankta Lucia is wearing her Crown of Light composed of a holly wreath and circle of lighted candles. She carries a tray bearing flowers, coffee and saffron buns (her traditional Feast Day treats).
And, fittingly, SHE LIGHTS UP!
With a flick of a switch, Sankta Lucia glowingly illuminates the embossed scene on her skirt of the Goddess surrounded by her attendant Maidens and Star Boys.
