New Museum object – Mari Llywd carving
The Museum recently acquired a beautiful carving of Mari Llywd (who visited the Museum on October 31st). It was carved by Phil Larcher (who is the person inside Mari - see photo below).
The carving was based on the photo above (taken by Vivien Morgan Larcher). The photograph is of Mari Llywd in Llantrisant bull ring next to the statue of Dr William Price during the Winter Solstice tour of 2008.
The photo also featured in the issue SAMHAIN- YULE 181 2011 of Pagan Dawn.
And here is the carving (which may form part of our upcoming 2016 exhibition on Halloween).
