Artist's Description

This image i posted before adding colour, now it is finished and is shown as it should be seen.
In my research into the festival of yule i found that its the time when the Holly King who raigns for twelve days is defeated by the young Oak King of the year to come. And this is what lead to the twelve days of Christmas as they are seen today. This festival is a solar celebration as from now on the days get lighter and the dead ground of winter will soon begin to grow once more.
Whilst the branch’s of ever greens invite the fairy foke into the home for good luck, Here these are shown along the bottom arch, flanked by sage and rosemary. In addition i have chosen to show the winter sun in muted colours containging a seven pointer pentagram also linked to this festival
