The Oak King
Gouache and watercolor, A3.
This drawing is inspired by the legend of Yule "The Holly King and the Oak King".

The winter solstice marks symbolically the return of the Sun which was plunged into the sleep. The nature becomes stronger.
The legend tells that in this long night takes place a fight between two brothers, the Holly King and the Oak King.
The first one reigns over the nature in dormancy, from fall to winter. The second dominates the awakened forest, from spring to summer. Both brothers represent the aspects of the cycle of the Sun. So, the Oak King, embodies the emerging Sun which wins in force while the Holly King, represents the declining Sun, becomes weakened. The Oak King triumphs and days get longer.
