A collaboration with Stevie Millgate, thank you so much for letting me use your image…Light over the Castle

A bit about the image…

The apple tree in this image signifies the magical, mysterious, feminine side to the Arthurian Legend while the light from the Castle’s cross shaped window signifies the heavy Christian influence in King Arthur’s life. He struggled with both throughout his lifetime.

Avalon – The Isle of Apples

A small church was built here by Joseph of Arimathea; the rest of the island is inhabited by a race of women who know all the magic in the world. It was here that King Arthur came with Merlin and a hand reached out of the water and offered him the sword Excalibur, which served him throughout his life. It is said that the hand belonged to the Lady of the Lake.

The island itself is a place of lakes and rock, with deep meadows and wooded hollows, where no wind blows and rain, hail, and snow have never been known to fall.
