The Morrígan

Stone & Steel - 2.75m Diameter x 1.6m Depth

The work takes its inspiration from the ancient Celtic pre-pagan triadic goddess with the same name, also described as 'Phantom Queen' dating back to the copper age. A complex Mythological Figure Representing three different women in one being. She elicits contrasting characteristics of sovereignty & fate, war & death, and rebirth & hope.

Alen-Buckley evokes her nature through sculpture bestowing an elemental symbolism like an ancient stone stela; the triplicate form indicates a belief that the many come from the One Source, simultaneously expressing communion and individuality.
