Hi, Today’s post is an oil of a snake lady. I have been experimenting with ideas around the Morrigan, triple aspect Celtic Goddess. The fact that there are similar archetypes of this goddess across cultures intrigues me.
This design originated from wonderful illustrations by the artist Corinna Sargood for Angela Carter’s Book of Fairy Tales. These stories also reflect timeless narratives that are found in similar forms across the globe. I’m loving the idea that art and story telling are the ageless threads that bind us all together across time and space!
