I pulled my first print of the year yesterday – The Minoan Snake Priestess. The print depicts the figurine of a woman holding a snake in each hand found during an excavation of a Minoan archaeological site in Crete dating from approximately 1600 BCE.
This print will also be my first Wheel of the Year (2013) print. This year as well as creating a print for each festival I will also be co-ordinating gatherings to celebrate and honour the Celtic Wheel of festivals which spin through our seasons. A friend and I have started ‘The Spiral Grove’ and our first gathering will be at Imbolc on February 9th celebrating Brigit and the Snake. The gathering will be just a few hours before the Aquarius new moon which is the start of the Chinese Year of the Snake.
