♥ Deer Medicine A4 Print ♥
Print taken from my original artwork 'Deer Medicine'
Since moving to Wales I've felt drawn to understand more about our connection to the land through the power of stories and myth. I discovered that the Welsh story of the goddess Ceridwen and her cauldron of inspiration is based around Bala Lake (pictured) which I see everyday while walking in the hills above my house.
Elen of the ways the antlered deer goddess has strong links to Wales, recently I walked part of Sarn Helen one of her ancient trackways and on my daily dog walks I look across to the magical Berwyn mountain range (pictured) with it's majestic waterfall Pistyll Rhaeadr where it's said the gateway to Arthur's ancient lands and the kingdom of the Celtic otherworld resides.
Deer Medicine represents a journey into the myths and legends of this Celtic otherworld, in the Celtic world nothing is ever straight, journeys go one way and then the other gradually working towards the center & then back again, I used the labyrinth motif to represent this journey, if you follow the pathway it may take you from the depths of space to the path of the Sun and the Moon, through the ancient pinewoods to meet the ferry man with his boat ready and waiting to take you to journey to the underworld and back again, you may even discover Cerridwen's cauldron of inspiration along the way, Elen & the deer spirit will be by your side to guide you on your journey to the hidden realms.
