Young Cailleach' original oil painting

Young Cailleach' original oil painting

This large artwork in oil paint and oil pastel on paper represents purely imaginative vision of my favourite character in Celtic mythology.

One of the great Celtic ancestors, the Cailleach was the goddess of cold and winds. She determinedthe winter's lenghts and harshness.
The Cailleach was both ageless and immortal; as winter gave way to spring, she would take a drought that returned her to youth.
I Manx legend, she spent half the year as a young woman and the other half as an old crone, she was only known as the Cailleach during the later half. In Ireland , she had seven periods of youth, after which she remained old permanently.
