Munlochy Clootie Well. Each "Clootie" or cloth carries a wish or a prayer tied to the trees. The practice dates back to the Celts. They are prayers for healing or wishes for love. But tread carefully here in Munlochy Woods for the Ghillie Dubh lives in these woods and will steal the shoes off anyone who is not of pure intent. Hence there are also many shoes and boots tied high up in branches... #ghilliedubh #munlochy #clootiewell #visitscotland #celticfolklore #prayers #wishes #health #love #scottishhistory
IVY MUSINGS This mornings first little jobeen was to craft these mini #ivy wreaths, the idea for which came while out on woodland saunters with Mama Marley. These wreaths are currently drying and will be another little gift inclusion with ‘The heART of Ritual’ Moonbox next month, in a collection dedicated to ‘Connection’. Ivy very much resonates with letting go of the old, not clinging to the past, and reconnecting/realigning loyalty with Self (aka Higher Self/Spirit). In Irish folklore, Ivy is a symbol of enduring fertility and life, especially at Christmas when it is traditionally used for decoration. Ivy (#hederahelix ) is the focus of our plant profile next month and together we will explore its folk medicine uses, myths, legends and folklore. Ivy really is the perfect bridge to take us up to and over the #wintersolstice and was generally believed to have powers of protection and love divination in the old Irish traditions. The ‘Connection’ Moonbox is the second in our Earth Element/Winter cycle and I very much look forward to sharing it for many reasons, not least because it indulges my love of indigenous oral tradition and storytelling. Story medicine is a very big part of winter ancestral tradition, and quintessential earth element. I finished recording the audio for this collection this evening and the recipe sheets, tutorials and other written offerings will be completed early next week and shipped to Moonbox family thereafter. Just a few subscriptions remain for the upcoming Air Element/Spring cycle of ‘The heART of Ritual’, so if you feel drawn to call these collections home, this is likely to be the last opportunity to do so. Full information on this home retreat service (and how to sign up) can be inJoyed via the link in profile. Subscriptions are available per season or for the full cycle of the Celtic Wheel of the Year, and yes, we ship worldwide! ;-) In Love #ivywreath #celticcustoms #celtictraditions #celticfolklore #earthelement #celticwheeloftheyear #livingceremony #theheARTofritual #stonemad #LOVE
Another session on this custom Morrigan sleeve I started a while back! Looks pretty saturated to me, hahaha. No photoshop, no editing, no camera tricks... just solid tattooing. 2 more should close it up! #turkturkturk #celticfolklore #lhblk
The Swan Maiden ✨ The Celtic peoples knew five seasons with Alban Eiler, the Vernal Equinox, coming in spring, also called flowering. Alban Eiler celebrates the youthful spirit of new life warmed by the March sun. Those born under Alban Eiler are gifted with the grace and eloquence of the Celtic Sun God's swan-maiden bride. Stories of the Swan-Maiden go back for centuries, and appear in both eastern and western literature. Women who turn into birds and vice versa were popular themes, and the swan was particularly favoured due to its grace in the water. Celtic folk-lore brings us The Legend of the Children of Lir. When King Lir’s first wife dies, he marries a wicked woman Arife. Jealous of Lir’s children from his first wife, Arife turns them all into swans. 💫 Available as part of the Goddess Collection. A 42 x 57cm print on Foamex. This is very durable and does not need to be framed. Available online or at my shop. Along many other of my art works in various sizes and prices.

Ankou is the fairy embodiment of death in Celtic folklore. He’s said to have been an unnamed prince who was very bold and made a hunting wager with Death. He lost and was sentenced to roam the earth and collect the souls of the dead. In some versions, he has skeleton helpers to hurl the new souls into his cart. A cold wind signals his arrival.

Selkies are a kind of aquatic faerie, and stories of them are found throughout Ireland, Scotland, the Orkney Islands, the Faroe Islands, and Iceland. The term “selkie” supposedly originates from an older Scots word, “selich”, which simply means “seal.” However, at least in the dialect of Orkney, “selkie” is itself just a word for “seal”. In Scotland and Ireland, selkies are often not differentiated from mermaids and may be referred to simply as “maighdeann-mhara”, meaning “maidens of the sea”. Said to live in the sea as seals, selkies may assume the form of a human to traverse on land. When changing into human form, a selkie quite literally sheds its seal skin, which they are often depicted as wearing like a cloak. A selkie’s seal skin is its most important and treasured possession, as it is the source of their shapeshifting powers; without it, a selkie can’t change back into its seal form and return home to the sea. - - - - - - - - - - - #wildwitherfolklore #wildwitherchallenge #art #artwork #artist #artistsofinstagram #artistsoninstagram #newart #newartist #traditionalart #finelinerart #dotworkart #dotwork #dotworkers #blackwork #blackandwhite #selkie #selkies #faeries #scotland #scottish #scottishfolklore #celtic #celticfolklore #gaelic #gaelicfolklore

Un grand Merci à Marina pour cette très belle chronique 🙏😍 Voici un extrait. Vous pouvez le lire dans son intégralité sur le blog de @sorcerer.library : “Si je devais décrire ce roman en un seul mot je dirais:surprise. Je ne m’attendais pas du tout à cela. (...) l’histoire est intéressante et on y retrouve des liens avec des légendes celtes ce que j’apprécie particulièrement étant adepte du folklore de différents pays. C’est un roman féminin qui met en avant le pouvoir des femmes et j’ai aimé cette nation de femmes fortes (..) cela change du patriarcat habituel. Si vous aimez les légendes celtes, les romans centrés sur le pouvoir féminin, n’hésitez pas à lire celui-ci!” Vous aussi, qu’attendez-vous vous pour rejoindre Britannia?

One of our test pieces :) We are fashioning copper into winding styles inspired by Celtic mythology. This particular piece is a representation of story of the Selkie (A folklore tale about mystical seal spirit who transforms into a beautiful women and steals the hearts of fishermen and sailors) We are getting closer and closer to finalising our designs are crafting them into objects of desire, that tell these long lived stories. More work coming soon. #songsofthesea #selkie #artisan #jewellery #handmadejewelry #celticmythology #celticfolklore
Day IV - Ghost Les Lavandières de nuit, known in English as the midnight washerwomen. They known in several regions of Europe, mostly in French and Celtic folklore. They are a sort of White Lady. According George Sand, they are the ghosts of cursed mothers who killed their children. You can meet them at night time, in deserted watery landscapes, eternally washing bloody clothing... . . . #ghost #folklore #frenchfolklore #celticfolklore #pencilanddigital #folktaleweek #folkart #folktaleweek2018 #moonlight #creepystories #legends #nanofevrier

Selkies / Seal-folk aren’t malicious creatures but I wanted to make a creepy looking one anyway.

Púca • (sp. Pooka, Phouka, Phooka, Phooca, Puca, Púka ect.) The Púca is one of Ireland’s most famous and sinister mythological creatures, primarily of Celtic folklore. A Púca is a shapeshifter and can take any form it chooses but usually it is seen in the form of a dog, rabbit, goat, goblin, or even an old man. Traditionally it is seen as a dark, sleek horse with a long, flowing mane and golden eyes. 🖤

The leanan sídhe (also leanhaum shee) was a muse who exacted blood payment in exchange for inspiration. This dark fairy would disguise herself as a beautiful young woman and seduce her victim. If he somehow managed to resist, she’d kill him violently and drain the corpse of blood. Those seduced world have their life force slowly drained during lovemaking sessions, and she stored the blood of those she killed in a cauldron. The blood kept her young and powerful, but she also fed some to her lover, to inspire him in writing beautiful poetry.

Merci à Frédérique, notre nouvelle voyageuse en Celtie, pour cette fabuleuse chronique. 🙏😍😍😍 "Si j’ai demandé ce sp à l’auteure c’est avant tout parce que son livre m’intriguait(...) Mais quelle belle surprise j’ai eu quand je me suis rendu compte que le prologue servait juste à planter le décor comme il faut. Et j’avoue que si il n’y avait pas cette « introduction » le livre n’aurait pas autant conquis mon coeur. Moi qui vit en Bretagne, j’ai découvert de belle histoire, de beaux endroit. Le livre est un vrai moment d’évasion, je suis tombée sous le charme de ce livre. Ce livre détient un merveilleux voyage qui vous fera traverser le temps. On découvre une histoire moderne aux traditions celtes. Une magnifique histoire qui vous permettra de vous évader dans une histoire prenante et captivante.

Folktale week: forest The Fairy Tree of Dooros. Irish. A dropped fairy berry turns into a fairy tree, guarded by a giant with poison breath... a princess, a curse, and a sparrow round out the tale. #folktaleweek2018 #folktaleweek #forest #irish
Today is the start of #folktaleweek2018 and I decided to participate as I've been wanting to add a more whimsical folky vibe to my animal art and so when I found out about this challenge it seemed like serendipity! To make it manageable with other commissions I'm working on, I've stuck with the #atc size of 2.5 x 3.5 inches. These will all be for sale in my Etsy shop at the end of the challenge. Day 1's prompt is #forest and I decided to add a white stag to mine. In Celtic folklore the white stag was considered to be a messenger from the other world. Their appearance was said to bring change to the lives of those who encounter them. . . ........................................................... #folktale #folkart #folktaleweek #whimsicalart #folktaleart #whitestag #celticmythology #celticfolklore #mythsandlegends #myths #artoftheday #aceos #aceo #illustration #forestart #colourfulart #whimsy #ihavethisthingwithcolour #allthecolours #artchallenge #instaart #miniatureartist #artbynicolamclean #picturebook #creativelifehappylife

Most of these pics turned out a bit blurry since I wasn’t wearing any contacts. I’m inept at lenses first and then makeup. I end up getting some from my waterline on the lenses and then can’t see very well. So I’m usually somewhat blind while doing my makeup.

Finally finished🎉 inspired by the celtic story The Children of Lir
The sluagh are the most feared denizens of the faerie realm. They are the foulest, darkest and most vile creatures, and they feast on souls. Though they seek out the dying, they have no qualms about taking the souls of the happy, healthy and living. As they are more difficult to procure, those are the sweetest of souls. Those stolen will suffer for eternity, never finding peace, doomed to circle the darkened skies, partake in the wild hunt, stealing souls... There are some who still keep their westward windows closed in fear, particularly on Samhain.

I will have one little selkie available next weekend at CraftArt Festival. Selkies are seal folk that can change to human by shedding their seal skin. You will find them in Irish and Scottish #folklore as well as peppered in Scandinavian and Icelandic tales. The most common stories involve female selkies who can only spend a few years on land among humans unless her skin is stolen in which case she is trapped. Selkie women love to shed their skin to dance in human form under the moonlight but if course she has to be careful because some jerk might steal her skin and force her to marry him. In other tales, the selkie keeps her true identity secret, falls in love and lives as a human until the call to the sea is so strong she must return to it. Ooh...I'm vaguelly remembering a film about a selkie...the secret of roan innish i think which i hope is on netflix or amazon! #irishfolklore #celticfolklore #selkie #seal #folklore #lore #narrativesculpture #narrativeart #ceramic #figurativeceramics #ceramiclove #ceramics #contemporaryclay #contemporaryceramics #popsurrealism #newcontemporary #postcontemporary #mythicalcreatures #characterart #calanree
••••••••••••••••••••••••RESERVED••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••Mixed media finished rough from my Moleskine. . . There is legend, in Ireland, that the 'Good People' light fires on treacherous rocks to warn fishermen of danger. .. But they said to me: . "Did you feel it? And did you dance in the milky way? (Before you cared and before you stayed). And did you ever ask the old man of the house, if he had ever heard such things as this? And surely, didn't his father and his father's father see the 'forth' and 'beyond' all of them and all things? Did the women of this island hold babies to their breasts? And did you ever ask again, if he knew a sean-sgéal? And did you ever kiss a speckled bull and visit the well, the one at the end of the world? And was it you (yes, it was you) that looked into my eyes, that turned more corners than walls in that inn by the harbour .. Mmm, yes..you remember the tavern, with the crooked chimney: 'The Nine Times Out of Ten'. And did it seem forever? Was it you who looked away? And did you like the milky way and did you dance on that journey well?"

One of my favorite things about traveling on pilgrimage to ancestral lands and sacred sites is to be able to connect to the women of that land—the women who hold the secrets of the ancestors of that place in their bones.⠀ ⠀ When I traveled to Ireland for the first time for the autumn equinox in 2017, I was fortunate enough to be connected with one such woman—Karen Ward (@moonmna ).⠀ ⠀ Karen is a Celtic Shaman and facilitator of Celtic Women’s Circles (called Moon Mna) based out of Dublin, Ireland. She is a powerful healer who I have learned so much from being in ceremony with over the past year.⠀ ⠀ I invited Karen to come on video for today’s post to share more about her work with the moon, the traditional Celtic sun festivals, the power of this time of year, Irish myth and legend, and to share a creation of hers I’m truly in love with and hope you will enjoy too.⠀ ⠀ We talked about:⠀ - My experience of having the Celtic soul awakened in me⠀ - Why so many folks are called back to Ireland and the way the country is addressing its shadow⠀ - Grief held in land and healing the trauma of the Tuam babies⠀ - When our western minds try to rush through time and avoid a slower pace⠀ - Connecting to earth energies no matter your ancestry (this is not just for folks who identify with the Celtic ways)⠀ - An Cailleach, the old crone and keeper of this time with her grandmother energy⠀ - My connection with Sheela Na Gig, the ancient naked woman who reminds us of our wildness⠀ - Karen’s Moon Mna Diary Journal (which I’m featured in for September!)⠀ Click the link in my profile to watch!
