An Urn lid from Maltegardens Mark in eastern Zealand, Denmark displays the incised figures of a man and woman. They are encircled by something that resembles a hair plait. This may be a fertility symbol.

Mater Matuta from the Estruscan city of Chiusi (4th c. BCE) In Roman religion, Mater Matuta was the goddess of the ripening of grain and of women fertility. Her worship in Italy was widespread and of ancient origin. The festival of the Mater Matuta (the Matralia) was held on June 11 and was marked by several unusual customs - among them that only free women in their 1st marriage might take part and that their prayers were not for their own children, but for those of their sisters.
