Crossing the ocean
Ink on oil paper.
Inspired by the writings of Lady Gregory.
Cian and a druid wrapped in a magical cloak cross the ocean to an island with a tower where his love resides.
The tower is guarded by women and the druid dresses Cian in women’s clothes to help him enter the tower.
The story comes from the book Gods and Fighting Men which was first published in 1904.
The book covers the Irish mythological cycle.
I choose the title of crossing the ocean as that was the part of the story that most intrigued me.
Would highly recommend this book for anyone interested in the ancient mythology of Ireland.
