This piece was requested by the guardian of the Temple of Elen, based in England. In the beginning I didn’t have much knowledge or intuitive connection with this almost forgotten goddess and was curious to know her, and after meditating on the request through 2018 I connected deeply with this ancient goddess, and this piece is the expression of that connection. Elen of the Ways is now one of the shining ones who walks with me when I journey on the web of life, illuminating the old ways and showing me the paths to take.
Elen or Ellen of the Ways, antlered goddess of the Wild Hunt. Goddess of sacred spring, of old track ways and of the Labyrinth. She completes the feminine aspect to the Horned God in balance, male and female in harmony. She has dominion over the animal realms, fae mother and priestess illuminator of the sacred paths. She has walked veiled from man for centuries mentioned in the tales of the Mabinogion. Sometimes referred to as the Green Lady. Revealing herself in this time her message to mankind, to return to the old track ways and run once more as part of the Wild Hunt, so mankind can remember its place in this world and bring balance once more.
