Lugh - Bard Mythologies
Lugh is an important god of Irish mythology. A member of the Tuatha Dé Danann, Lugh is portrayed as a youthful warrior hero, a king and saviour. He is associated with skill, crafts and the arts as well as with oaths, truth and the law. He is sometimes interpreted as a sun god, a storm god or a sky god. Lugh is also strongly associated with the harvest festival of Lughnasadh, which is named after him.
Diancecht was the Irish god of Healing and Medicine in Celtic culture during the Bronze age in Ireland. Diancecht was the son of Dagda, "the good god of the Irish Celts", and was the physician to the Tuatha De Danaan, the ruling clan of gods. His son, Miach, was also a healer but preferred to use incantations and herbs when healing which was at odds with his father's surgical methods.
Sirona by Laiyla on DeviantArt
Sirona was a Celtic goddess of healing and fertility, worshipped mostly around the area of Teveri (Triers) and in the Donau area. Her standard attributes include a bucket of eggs (for fertility) and the snake, which stands for healing. As you know most pharmacies and doctors still use the symbol of the snake. I included a pond in the background and I mostly used cool greens and blues as I think these colors suggest healing and calmness.

Saulė (Lithuanian: Saulė, Latvian: Saule) is the Baltic Goddess of the sun. (artwork by lombrascura) Saule, the sun, rides each day through the sky on a chariot with copper wheels, drawn by horses who neither tire nor rest nor sweat. Toward evening Saule washes the horses in the sea, sitting on top of a hill, holding the golden reins in her hand. Then she goes beyond the silver gates into her castle at the end of the sea.
Nantosuelta - Celtic: Nature Goddess worshipped primarily in Gaul. One of her attributes was the raven, which linked her with the Irish goddess Morrígan. The raven may also connote an association with the home, with fertility, and also with the dead. There is a water attribute associated with her. She is sometimes portrayed together with Sucellus (“Good Striker”), the Gaulish god of agriculture. ---Sarah bowman artist
