The Crone has had a lot of time over the course of her life for introspection. She is finally at peace with herself, with humanity, and with Nature, and is able to fully embrace the roller coaster of life with quiet equilibrium. 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.
