Hi, this piece is perfect for today where the sun continues to split the rocks here in Ireland.
It’s called “Skyclad” meaning to wear nothing but the sky. Celts fought in battle naked, bodies painted blue with woad and lime paste (not the fruit) in their hair to make it stand up in spikes.
This was not just to make them look fierce but also as a part of their spirituality. A Roman general wrote in C.E. 225 that the Celts believed going skyclad expanded their life force enabling them to become one with nature and the divine.
This piece is a modern reflection of this with two skyclad women lost in the energy of their dance. It took about 3 weeks to make, hope you like it.
