Wrath- uncontrollable fury.
In Irish folklore the Banshee or Bean Sidhe is basically the Messanger of Death. Banshees are spirits tied to the earthly plane and if they’ve lived a life of sin or in other versions, if they had reasons to hate their family haunted them. They follow the families and wait until every single member of the family is dead and buried. They let out a piercing cry that is usually only heard by the person who is about to die. It’s somewhat of a warning, as it is heard the night before the person dies. Always dressed in white, they are also said to be washing the clothes of the person who is about to die in rivers. Banshees are also said to be fairies.
My intent on this is for her to be floating in the air, but then I realized it doesn’t look so much like it. She can be on a cliff, or floating or watever, but to me I’ll look at it as shes on a fairy mound, because if you mess with a fairy mound in the folklore you’re bound to be hurt by the fairies. Lots of white in it, she was supposed to have a pale white skin with a purple tint to it but I went overboard, which worked out 4 the better bc i rele like the purple skin. I loved working on this wood, it was amazing and I need 2 buy more, the woodgrain is awesome and brought a different aspect to the piece.
