This image is based on a Welsh legend about an enchantress, Ceridwen, who pursues a boy, Gwion, after he steals a potion which grants wisdom. Using the powers of the potion Gwion disguises himself as many different animals hoping to escape the goddess including a hare, a fish, even a single grain of corn. Ceridwen, being a goddess finds him easily through the forms of a greyhound, otter and a hawk.
Once she catches Gwion she imprisons him in a leather-skin bag and throws him into the ocean. Later, and still alive, he is rescued by a prince and eventually grows up to be the legendary bard Taliesin.
This image portrays Ceridwen in both her goddess form and hawk form and is deliciously dark and draped in mythology.
