Executed in pointalism, dry-brush and cross-hatch. A mythological collage of Scottish, Celtic and Norse influences. A limited edition print in black-and-white. A painstaking execution in india ink. The composition required roughly a year from start to finish. The image area is roughly 17 x 22 including the signature, title and print number. Each print is signed and numbered. Once these prints are sold, this image will be retired from my inventory.
Druids and later “witches” were thought to shapeshift into hares for magical work. Because of this belief, according to Julius Cesar (since we all know his works on the Celts are just so very reliable), it was considered taboo amongst the Celts to eat hare in case you were eating someone who was just shifting.
"The May Queen is a girl crowned with flowers who is selected to ride or walk at the front of a parade for May Day celebrations. She wears a white gown to symbolise purity and usually a tiara or crown. Her duty is to begin the May Day celebrations."
“Once the soul awakens, the search begins and you can never go back. From then on, you are inflamed with a special longing that will never again let you linger in the lowlands of complacency and partial fulfillment. The eternal makes you urgent. You are loath to let compromise or the threat of danger hold you back from striving toward the summit of fulfillment.” ― John O'Donohue, Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom
