Hi Everyone *S*
This is my version of the ancient Celtic Goddess Brigid who is the Goddess of fire, fertility, hearth, healing, smithcraft,
love, poetry, witchcraft and occult knowledge. Her name means "the exalted one."
She tends the triple fires of smithcraft (physical fire), healing (the fire of life within), and poetry (the fire of the spirit). Green is her color and perhaps one of the reasons she is so beloved is she is said to have invented beer in Ireland!
Her feast day is the Pagan Sabbat Imbolc (the Christian Candlemas) when the predictions for the coming Spring were made, a remnant of
which is seen in the modern Groundhog Day.
She had an exclusive female priesthood at Kildare
and an ever-burning fire. She had 19 priestesses representing the 19 year cycle of the Celtic "Great Year."
Y'all have a great day and thanks a bunch for comments and faves *S*
~ Love & Hugs ~

Fantastic scene, expresssion on the character's face is beautifuly enigmatic. The background makes it is as if she is in an alcove of light in a dark world. I also like the touch of golden "pixie dust" around the sword hilt and upon the cracked rocks.

How else shall we know that which comes from out of ourselves but by extrnalizing it? Oddly once out it won't go back in but increases and multiplies.
