Bronwyn Rodden #28 - Journey to Ink

Sheela na Gig (for Lizz Murphy and Michele Morgan) Linocut on board.

Almost Halloween, or Samhain, and it's time to see some really scary women. It's not all landscapes for me, and I love that they found the greatest number of these images of lewd, 'unfeminine' women in Ireland, where my family is from. Nobody can prove where they originated, what they are for or why they were created. Perfection!

  1. The sheela na gigs are wonderful. You find them in hidden corners of churches from Cambridge to Capranica in Italy.
