Rhiannon II - Annette Elizabeth Sykes
"One of Natures awe inspiring sights is the huge golden globe of a Super Moon lording it over clear, clear skies populated by galaxies of twinkling stars, almost as if in obeisance to its’ glory.
Absurdly then, my thoughts turned to the nursery rhyme ‘The Cow Jumped Over the Moon’; but, what if it hadn’t been a cow, but the tangible description of a god or goddess proclaiming in the heavens, translated into everyday imagery for the populace?
Immediately Rhiannon sprang to mind, goddess of the Moon, the night; so here she is carrying the element of air or wind within her patterning, seemingly leaping, dancing, delighting in her other worldly physicality, across the face of the moon. These fanciful ideas encompassed my imagination and playtime took care of the rest!"
