Moura by fae-photography   Caer Ibormeith by fae-photography   The Morrigan by fae-photography  Aoibhelle by fae-photography   Gold and Earth by fae-photography  Selkie by fae-photography

Part of a series I am working on.
Self Portrait.


The fairy tales featuring the enchanted Mouras are thought to be pre roman, indo-celtic origin, magical maidens who guard castles, caves, bridges, wells, rivers, and treasures.  
She often appears singing and combing her beautiful long hair, golden as gold with a golden comb, and promises to give treasures to whom sets her free by breaking her spell.
According to ancient lore, they are the souls of young maidens who were left guarding treasures that were hidden before other supernatural beings disappeared from the mortal world.
They appear as guardians of the pathways into the earth and are believed to be the builders of the Paleolithic hill forts, The Dolmens and megaliths, They are believed to still live there.

Congrats on the DD; love the pose and I love how the body paint has a feeling of representing something pre-Roman, indo-Celtic in origin.
