Austeja, surely. Q. Cassetti. from somewhere here: qcassetti.squares...

Austeja, Lithuanian Bee Goddess For millenia, bees have been incredibly important to numerous cultures around the world. In Lithuania, Austeja is the Bee Goddess, connected to deep friendship, order within the family unit, strong work ethic, hospitality, and the sun. Even today, one can find shrines to this living Goddess! With the travesty of the bees dying off, it seemed to me a good idea to honor the bees of the world with this doll. Without the bees, none of us would be here!

Austeja, Goddess of Bees - Austeja, the Bee Goddess of Lithuania, where the honeybee is a symbol of friendship: One way to call someone a friend in Lithuania is to call them “bičiulis“, which is derived from the Lithuanian word for bee "bitė". The Lithuanian word “medus” (honey) comes from the word “medis” (tree) because honey was found in the trees, and traditional beehives were logs.

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.
