This is a companion piece for “Benzaiten”. These are goddess like creatures of inspiration, music and creativity. This painting is a loose interpretation of the Gaelic goddess Druantia. Worship of her probably originated in Gaul. The root of her name, “drus” means “oak” and so links her with oak trees and from that the druids, and is often called “Queen of the druids”. These days she is associated with the Dryads and rules the realms of creativity, fertility, passion, trees, protection, and knowledge. This piece was originally made for display in my friends beautiful violin store, Simply for Strings in Brisbane.
