St. Brigid's Priestesses

St. Bridig's Priestesses Series

St. Bridig's Priestesses Series explores the mythology and symbolism of St. Brigit, a Celtic goddess, in connection to Maya, the ancient Vedic term for an illusion of form and the Great Lunar Year. Marion Youngblood’s Siderealview Blog assigns each of the nineteen Priestesses of Brigit to the nineteen components of the Great Lunar Year, creating “cyclic pattern divinations.” This cyclic pattern can be seen in many forms, for example, the naturally occurring DNA helix or sine wave, which I include in my composition. This is an ongoing series of portraits (24 x 30 x 1.5 in.) on canvas in acrylic and oil. The exploration of the mythology of St. Brigits's Priestesses will continue through the nineteenth portrait.
