Morrigan Serpent Crepe de Chine Scarf, 130cm square, £!90
Ltd edition of 300, 100% silk with a handrolled edge, 130cm x 130cm
The Éadach Morrigan Serpent pocket square, inspired by 70s rock n roll..slinky and psychedelic.
A product of dreams, memories and coincidences, this print draws on the story of the Morrigan, the shape-shifting Celtic Goddess of War, Fate and Death. Her alter egos include a serpent, and a thunder storm. The eye represents a long running battle she had with Cuchulainn, as he shot at her with a sling shot when she attacked him in the form of a wolf, blinding her. He broke her ribs when she took the form of a seaserpent and her leg when in the form of a heifer. She took her final revenge, settling on his shoulder as he died in battle, in her most famous form, that of a crow or raven. (There is a bronze statue of this moment in the window of the GPO, Dublin)
Like so many strong characters in Irish mythology, she represents female power and energy and is known as a protector, having the ability to allow a person to draw on their inner strength.
Please note that due to the nature of silk and with the scarves being printed in small batches that colours can vary slightly, although we try our best to ensure continuity. Due to this and computer/ phone screen settings the colours can look a little different to above.
