Caer Ibormeith
1.6K Views|1 Today

Cáer Ibormeith is the swan lady that made fall in love Óengus Mac Óg, the celtic God of Love. Aside from this tale there are not more references to her. It's a really misterious character. The full tale here: [link]
I read somewhere that the golden/silver chains are indicators of the otherworldy aspects of this women. But cynical me likes to consider them a metaphor of love, as how it's a chain even if it's made of gold.

I'm going to submit it to the :iconmyths-and-legends: contest

es la mujer cisne que hizo que se enamorara Óengus Mac Óg, Dios del Amor celta. Aparte de esta historia no hay más refrencias de ella. Es un personaje muy misterioso. Toda la historia aquí: [link]
He leído en alguna parte que las cadenas de oro/plata son indicadores del aspecto "etéreo" de las mujeres cisne. Pero a la cínica en mi le gusta verlo como una metáfora del amor, como aunque esté hecha de oro sigue siendo una cadena.

I think it's a beautiful piece! I love the golden chain, you made it almost look out of sunlight or something - very beautiful. As far as criticism goes, you might want to watch you shading, it looks a bit purple, I think warmer hues would look better with the background and the hair. Well done!
