This is a unique, signed original hand-painted devotional icon for the Morrígan. She appears here in Her aspect as the Great Queen, the protector of sovereignty, the lady of ravens, and messenger from the Otherworld. Her aspect in this portrait is inspired by the tales which tell of Her emerging from the síd or Otherworld cave at Cruachan, of Her embodiment as a spirit of the land, and of Her role in the instigation of the great war, the Táin Bó Cúailnge.
Devotional icon paintings are hand-painted in acrylics on cradled wood panels, using metallic colors and accents that catch the glow of light. Panels are 6″ by 8″, with a wide cradled back, which allows the icon to stand upright on an altar or shrine; or it can easily be hung on a wall. Each individual icon is a hand-painted, numbered and dated original. This also means each icon is unique and may look slightly different in painted details from the photograph, but will employ similar colors and consistent design composition.
These icons are made as time allows and based on demand from interested folks. If the icon you’re interested in is not currently available, you can place a back-order. PLEASE NOTE: back-ordered icons may take up to 6 weeks to complete and ship, as they need to be HAND PAINTED in my available time. If you’d like to request a new icon design, you can place a custom order here.
