Epona the Horse Goddess

Epona the Horse Goddess

February 07, 2017

I've been thinking about the Celtic horse goddess Epona. She would show herself as a white horse, or a woman riding on a white horse. There are lots of cross cultural connections in using the white horse as a totem or symbol. Anyway, I painted a couple of pieces in water media on handmade paper using the theme of the horse goddess. The one with three horses is done on bark paper using sepia ink and metallic powder. It is called "The Sign of Epona" and is available here.The one with four horses is called "Epona and the Four Directions".  I like this one because it is multi cultural, and has synbolism form Native American tradition and Celtic tradition. This is available in the shop here.
