Symbols (Newbie Devotee Challenge)

Day 4: What symbols/animals/plants/etc. are associated with your deity? 

I’m just listing the ones I know; I’m certain she has other associations, and that as I learn more about her I’ll learn more associations of hers.  For now, this is what I have.

Mushrooms–she loves mushrooms, back when I had an e-shrine on Tumblr, I swear like 75% of her tag was just picture of mushrooms.  Not only are mushrooms often found in the woods (much of Outer Darkness is woodland) but there are colonies of mushrooms that can live to be thousands of years old, and thousands of acres in area.  Most of that colony is underground. and uses dying tree roots for support in growth.

Animal skulls–particularity bird, coyote, and fox skulls.  She’s a goddess of Death and the Hunt, so this association blends those two together.

Bows and arrows–she’s associated with hunting, being the Queen of the Wild Hunt.  I associate her with archery, especially, when it comes to hunting.  If I ever get back into archery, I’ll probably devote it to her.

Wolves–wolves are very social animals, but are also very protective of their own.  That’s why I associate her with wolves, along with wolves simply being cool animals.
