Fairy Cattle

Etching and calligraphyFairy Cattle, 202220x 13

This piece takes inspiration from Scottish deer. In our culture they are known as fairy cattle, milked and ridden by the bean sìdhe’s. I contemporise the legend with its palette. My other entries also focus on Scottish mythological creatures, recounting the visuals from stories passed down.
