The Maiden is everything a child might be ~ fearless, playful, adventurous... There is also certainly an innocent ignorance that seals her bliss. The Tied to the Moon triptych tells a story of the Moon's connection to us and the Earth, as translated through ancient Celtic spirituality. While the puppet-like quality of the subjects reflects the Moon's influence, the poses illustrate shifting perspectives via three Celtic archetypes: Maiden, Mother, and Crone. Together, they represent the complete life cycle.
