Hi There,
I'm the Prop Master on TV Show called Famous In Love.  Wondering if you'd consider allowing us to use this image on our show.  There is a Boudica reference in the show and we show an image of it.  I'd need to show it to the Director first to see if this would work for them, but I don't want to do that if you're not into it.  Maybe we can figure out a way to talk to work out details if you think this could work.

Possibly, email me (giaour94@hotmail.com) if you get the go-ahead.

It is a beautifull constellation of peiple. Boudicea looking to the watchers, making a worried mine, the two warriors are turened the other way. Every thing is so detailed, the best is the tattoo of the Queen. All together a very good picture.

Do any of you live in Britain?

This is truly an amazing painting; in fact I like it so much that I would be very pleased if I could use it in my essay writing discussing Boudicca, but only with your permission of course. And so I would like to ask whether it is possible, thank you in advance whatever your decision will be for I really adore the image. Well done! :)

Holy. Crap.

This is amazing! I love the inclusion of the intricate celtic patterns, and those tattoos are just gorgeous!

OMG people need to learn history. Boudica was NOT CELTIC!!!! Nor was ANY OF BRITAIN OR IRELAND! The Celts were a middle German tribe thats it! End of!
Boudica was a Britain if she were in Scotland at the time she would have been a Pict. But she wasn't she was a Britain hence the Roman name Britannia!
She was queen of the Iceni her capital was Thetford, East Anglia, England.

I was talking about the knot on her tunic, which is in a style I learned to be called "Celtic". I KNOW she's a Celt herself. I've learned her history.

Are you British? or English? She was not a Celt she was a Britain just because you want to trample on the culture and generalise every group as Celtic. I was born and raised a few miles from her Capital i have walked the ground that she and her people once did and i resent such a blatant disregard for a people culture for the sake of putting people into a nice neat box. She was not a Celt end of.

I NEVER SAID SHE WAS A CELT. I was talking about the style of the knot on her dress. I'm sorry, I had a typo. Now PLEASE get over yourself and let me enjoy art.
