Música: Spiral Dance (Australia)

Spiral Dance (Australia)

Step through the Sylvan Doorway into the realm of the Goddess and the Green Man, where the horned one walks the leaf-dappled pathways and bright Áine dances in the greenwood at Midsummer.

Feel the spirit of the trees and hear the stones whisper in a land where the Fae will sing you into another time and space.

Come closer to the fire as the shadows lengthen and the beauty of the night surrounds you; dance to the tunes of your ancestors, hear the legend of Odin’s Wild Hunt and dark tales of immortal desire. And then remember the wise ones who have gone before.

Spiral Dance are:

Adrienne Piggott - Lead Vocals

Ingrid Hapke - Violin, Cello, Backing Vocals

David Bentley - Bass Guitars, Backing Vocals

Nick Carter - Electric and Acoustic Guitars, Backing Vocals

Paul Gooding - Diatonic Accordions, Backing Vocals

Rick Kearsley - Drums, Percussion

Cradle of Starlight

Traditional Art / Mixed Media / Fantasy 
©2012-2013 ~Art-of-Sekhmet

I had this creature in my mind since the beginning of winter: my imagination frequently generates the image of spirit-like cervines with large orbs of light between their antlers. So, the concept was itching it get out on paper.

This fantasy deer is based on the prehistoric megaloceros, or more commonly known as the "irish elk". Each antler of this creature was as tall as a man, making the antler span about 12 feet wide.

The celtic designs were inspired by the symbol of the white stag. The Celtic people considered them to be messengers from the otherworld.

Watercolour, acrylic inks, golden acrylics, winsor newton lifting preparation, and faber-castell polychromos pencils on 5"x7" arches satin finish paper. I had so much fun experimenting with all these mediums.
