Blodeuwedd

4 08 2008

As promised, here is a picture of the new piece titled Blodeuwedd.

From Wikipedia:

In Welsh mythology, Blodeuwedd or Blodeuedd, (Middle Welsh composite name from blodeu ‘flowers, blossoms’ + gwedd ‘face, aspect, appearance’: “flower face”), is a woman made from the flowers of broom, meadowsweet and the oak by Math fab Mathonwy and Gwydion to be the wife of Lleu Llaw Gyffes. Her story is part of the Fourth Branch of the Mabinogi, the tale of Math son of Mathonwy.

For this piece, I used images of each of the plants said to have been used to create Blodeuwedd: broom, meadowsweet, and oak.
