I could love a man with those three colors - hair black like a raven, cheeks red like blood and a body white as snow. - Dierdre of the Sorrows upon seeing her foster father skinning a calf in the snow. A raven landed to drink from the pooled blood. She would later meet the warrior, Naoise, who would bear these colors. I have always been drawn to this scene, its vivid and portentous imagery. I too could love a man with such colors. #deirdre #naoise #ulstercycle #irishmythology #wildwoman #witchywoman #mythicalfemale #mythicalwomen #magic #magical #ravenhair #bloodred #celticmythology #celts #otherworld #witch #witchesofinstagram #oldways #rootssunkdeep
