A3 Poster representation of an acrylic painting of the Irish Goddess Morrigan by Elena Danaan
The Morrigan is believed to be a manifestation of the Earth and a sovereignty goddess, chiefly representing the goddess’s role as guardian of the territory and its people. Morrigan is represented similarly in almost every artistic representation of her. She is young, with long, flowing dark hair. Her clothing is black and sometimes very revealing. Other times, she is cloaked so as not to show her face. Because she was a shape-shifter, she is often shown with one of the more common forms she would take on -the crow or raven. She is strikingly beautiful yet intimidating.
