Earth Goddess by Faerywitch

I LOVE this image so much! While it’s not meant to be Brighid, it makes me think of Her for several reasons, including the way that Her dress blends into the earth, the flowers all around Her feet (because it is said that flowers sprout wherever Brighid walks), and primarily the way that the sun is positioned. It is said that Brighid was born at the moment of daybreak and a column of fire shot from Her wee infant head, into the sky. These things all caught my eye when I came across this lovely piece.
