Oak King vs. Holly King by getupp Oak King vs. Holly King by getupp
In some wicca and pagan tradition they thought that the Oak King and the Holly King compete for the Goddess. The Holly King is the symbol of wisdom, harvest, darkness and death while the Oak King is the symbol of fertility, growth and stamina.
At summer solstice the winner is the Holly King and the daytime will be shorter and shorter. But at winter solstice the Oak King defeats the Holly King and the daytime will be longer and the nights will be shorter.
This is a never-ending fight between them but this is also the balance of the year. They are the good and the bad side of each other.

Hope you like my work! :)
