"World Mother",  Earth Goddess, or  "Madonna"
is a persistent theme in mythology and religion. 
Often referred to as a goddess and worshipped as such,
this myth assumes an omnipresent beneficent being with female qualities.
All around the world, a tremendous amount of artistic expression is devoted to her,

including some of the very earliest forms of art known.

She's often associated with the moon, symbolizing a reflection of the sun, or male deity.  
One name given to this being is Diana, but there are many others. 
She's usually associated with fertility, including plant growth.
