Apparently the Celts thought highly of her, which is only appropriate for a culture of head-hunters. It was not an uncommon practice for Celtic warriors to decorate the exteriors of their domiciles with the severed heads of soldiers they killed in battle. Not only did these household heads serve as an offering of thanks to the Goddess, but they also bore witness to the combat proficiency of the inhabitant.
There were other admirable characteristics unique to Macha besides a taste for decapitation. She was initially one of those numerous "Mother Goddesses" we hear so much about. Naturally this meant that she ruled over matters of fertility and such. She held absolute dominance over males, intimidating even the most virile of men with the sheer force of her insatiable sexuality.
This dual aspect of her nature - patroness of fruitfulness and productivity as well as fierce and ruinous warrior - brought her the mighty title of "Mother of Life and Death".
