Special limited edition medallion for this year's Winter Solstice! There are only one dozen of these medallions created, and once they are sold, I will not be reproducing them before possibly next winter.
This special medallion celebrates the rebirth of the Sun at the Winter Solstice. It envisions the unconquerable Sun rising from the long night on the Solstice morning, its rays of light like shining spears and swords piercing the darkness. Its design is inspired by the Winter Solstice alignment at the great Irish pre-Celtic temple tomb of Newgrange, where the Sun famously penetrates the mound at the moment of the Winter Solstice sunrise.
This talisman carries an original devotional portrait of Macha, Irish Goddess of horses, female power, sovereignty, and battle. Macha's words from the story of the fateful horse-race are etched around it: "Iss ed mo ainme ol sí bias arin oenuchsa co bráth. Telcid tra na heochu frim thoeb!" Its translation is "My name will forever cleave to the place of this assembly. Bring up the horses beside me!"
This medallion is adorned with an original Stag design combining Celtic and Pictish style elements. You can wear or display this wild creature to invoke the virility, passion, and wildness of the Stag, and to honor these ancient traditions.
This medallion is adorned with an original Wolf design combining Celtic and Pictish style elements. You can wear or display this cunning creature to invoke kinship, shapeshifting ability, cunning, ferocity, and warriorship, and to honor these ancient traditions of Wolf veneration.
