Goddess Brigid Original Watercolor & Acrylic Painting
Brigid is one of the most beloved goddess in Irish mythology. The name Brigid means exalted one, while her most ancient Gaelic name, Breo-Saighead, means fiery power or fiery arrow. As a solar goddess, she embodies the element of fire and is commonly depicted with rays of light or fire emanating from her head. Worshippers sometimes call Brigid the “Triple Goddess” for her fires of the hearth, inspiration, and the forge. She is a powerful being and through her fires, she is the patroness of healing arts, fertility, poetry, music, prophecy, agriculture, and smithcraft. Many people also call her the Goddess of the Well, as she also has ties to the element of water.
Brigid is one of my personal favorites what it comes to the Irish pantheon on deities and I had great time painting her. Ornaments you see surrounding her in this painting are called "Brigid´s crosses". They were ancients symbols of the sun and of course, the goddess Brigid.
