I’ve been working on designs for Irish Mythological figures for many years now. This is a recent drawing of Fionn Mac Cumhaill (sometimes called Finn MacCool), a pivotal hero in Irish Mythology. A half-Sidh (The original fair folk), he wield’s Feargal’s spear. The ogham text above reads Fionn Mac Cumhaill and below reads Fianna Baoiscne – his warrior-clan. The sigil in the background is the three cranes (cranes being catchers of fish), a symbol I’ve chosen to attribute to Fionn due to his role as a warrior-seer, discovered on a shield from Roman-era Ireland, the time of Fionn’s supposed existence.
He is the wielder of all knowledge, which he received from the Salmon of Knowledge. He is a clairvoyant and has a supernatural wisdom which prevents him from abusing his powers. He also happens to be one of the greatest mortal warrior’s in Irish mythology.
