Artist's Description

This is a collaboration of my good friend Ian Graham and myself. Therefore this work is not for sale.
He gave me the photo and asked me to create something out of it and I did. The original was a B/W photo of the forest.

The three women/ The Threefold Goddess….

Spanning many traditions found around the world is the concept of the Goddess as being threefold. These perceptions shared associations with the moon phases, with the growing seasons and with the phases of a woman’s life. Most frequently they are described as Maiden, Mother and Crone.

The Hunter

When in the wooded place I be
Then in the sacred grove is he
The God of Hunters, King of Creatures all
His horned head I see.

I sit beside him on the ground
As those in Gaul of bird and hound
His name is written but once, my Cernunnos
And still I know the sound.

He rules life and death
And guards the Otherworld
From where all forces flow
And all events doth know.

I know he will come
I’ve done the dances
Stay beside me now
Lord of the Antlers, Come…

Oh, when sun and moon
They rise up on yonder hill
He will rise inside me and
So shall ever be, shall ever be.

Featured in Witches, Wizards and Warlocks
