I am thinking of entering this new work in a show next month called "Cultural Crossroads." I have been going through a big Celtic art phase.
This piece has elements of the "fire of inspiration" (flames), St. Brigid's cross (the 4 antique brass/metallic elements around the rim of the circle), & of course, Celtic knotwork (body of firebird). I do not know of firebirds being present in Celtic folklore, so my inspiration here is a mixture of Celtic design with Slavic/Russian legend.
