13 Goddesses Week #1 - Celtic: Blodeuwedd

Celtic Goddess: BLODEUWEDD.
This is a Welsh Goddess of Spring. Her name means "Flower Face" and it is also the Welsh name for the Owl.
She is a Maiden Goddess (read my post about Triple Goddesses)
Blodeuwedd was created from nine types of flowers by a magician called Gwydion to be the wife of the hero Llew Llaw Gyffes in response to his mother's curse that he could have never had a human wife.
But Flower Face fell in love with Gronw Pebyr and they tried to kill the invulnerable Llew by tricking him in the only pose in which he could be wounded.
They were punished by Gwydion and she was transformed into an Owl.
And now show me yours! You have 5 days for linking your creation.
