The Morrígan


In stock



The Morrígan, Phantom Queen of the Tuatha Dé Danann, is the shape-shifting battle goddess of Irish mythology. Seen by many as a harbinger of death, she appears throughout the mythology and folklore of Ireland, often taking the form of a crow.

She was instrumental in the Second Battle of Moytura, and she is depicted in my artwork presenting two palms of the Fomorian King Indech’s blood to the army of the Tuatha Dé Danann.

The Morrígan also appears in later mythology with Cú Chulainn, where she appears to him as an old woman washing his armour in a stream before battle, a sure sign of his impending death. This version of The Morrígan is usually known as ‘The Washer at the Ford’.
