Morrigan by Illahie Morrigan by Illahie
A portrait of Morrígan, loosely based on the bronze mask-brooch find from Czechoslovakia dating back to mid-4th century BC.

She's often seen as a war deity, fore-telling deaths, but with her association to cattle she can also be considered as a deity of sovereignty, wealth and fertility

I initially wanted to make her style more similar to the portrait that I made of Lugh; [link] But she had other things in mind, and kept sending me left to right and wasting many sketches along the way. In all I'm VERY happy with the result, but I have to admit that it's unlike anything I've ever done when it comes to styling.

Hi Illahie :wave:

I'm part of a free esoteric webzine (Lune Bleue - it's french). I've writed an article on the Morrigu and I wonder if you would allow me I use this deviation. If you agree, can you tell me what copyright and link you want I put below the illustration.
Have a nice day.
Regards,

Xael, admin of #Chamanics-Pathways

its an excellent piece i can see how it differs from your other work but it still has that authentic feel it reminds me of the kind of reliefs you find on many cauldrons and other artifacts
