The subject is based on Badb Catha, a Celtic goddess who is part of
a trio of goddesses (or one goddess with three aspects, depending on
your source) called the Morrígan, Morrígu, or Morrígna. A similar
character also exists in Gaulish mythology called Catubodua or Bodua.
The Badb Catha aspect is a goddess of battles, and her name translates
from the Old Irish as “battle crow”.
This series of photographs led to a lino print
