The Morrigan

 Just came across this print of The Morrigan being offered at a gallery in Virginia - see it here.  This work was done in 1999 as an homage both to the late, great Frank Frazetta as well as my obsession with Celtic deities.

The Morrígan or Mórrígan, also known as Morrígu, is a figure from Irish mythology. The name is Mór-Ríoghain in Modern Irish, and it has been translated as "great queen" or "phantom queen". In this Frazetta-like depiction, her powerful legs stamp upon the world. She is often seen as the goddess of battle and war and of sex.

You can buy it here. They have a lot of other 1990s works of mine for resale!
