'THE MORRIGAN' by OLDEREALMS 'THE MORRIGAN' by OLDEREALMS
Since the Morrigan is the 'goddess of battle', Ive made her beautiful, but with an edge. She was known to be able to shape shift into a form of a crow and a wolf amongst other animals. The crow seemed to be her constant companion though according to Irish mythology.

I had to!  she was just so hauntingly beautiful.  I love drawings like this, and that's what I thought it was.  then I found it here and was blown away when I found out it's a sculpture!

I recognize the metal pieces on her arms.  I happen to have a few of them myself from grab bags I've purchased and I always wondered what could be done with them.  you had a great idea for their use.  Cutie Nod

I like this portrayal of the Goddess.  Much darker and sinister than the other images I come across.  Nicely done -- such power!
