An original A3 painting, created in watercolours, ink, acrylic paints and gold leaf, on watercolour paper.
The image of a beautiful young woman, with purple hair, adorned by a gold halo, is ethereal and beautiful and would make a great addition to any space.
Niamh is a Celtic Goddess.
In the Irish Fenian Cycle, is the lover or spouse of Oisín, son of Fionn mac Cumhail.
In the story Niamh was nn otherworldly woman who carried away Oisín to live with her in her domain of Tír na nÓg, the Land of Youth.
She had two sons and a daughter with Oisín. After more than 300 years of living together, Niamh reluctantly allowed Oisín to visit Ireland, imposing on him a taboo not to touch the ground there, and once he did, he turned old and was unable to go back to see Niamh ever again.
In the medieval version, Niamh was a mortal princess of Munster who eloped with Oisín to Ulster but committed suicide when her father's army arrived in pursuit.
