- Morrigan Wolf Art is apart of my ongoing Celtic Mythology Series
Firstly Morrigan is the Celtic Goddess of Battle, strife, sovereignty & a War Deity. She sometimes appears in the form of a crow, flying above the warriors announcing death. The Morrígan associates with war and fate. Moreover she especially relates with foretelling doom, death or victory in battle. Consequently in this role she often appears as a crow.
Most importantly she incites warriors to battle and can help bring about victory over their enemies. Similarly in the Ulster cycle she takes the form of a wolf. Furthermore her name translates to “great queen” or “phantom queen”.
The Morrígan encourages warriors to do brave deeds, strikes fear into their enemies. She portrays as washing the bloodstained clothes of those fated to die. She is most frequently seen as a goddess of battle and war and has also been seen as a manifestation of the earth and sovereignty goddess. Chiefly she represents the goddess’s role as guardian of the territory and its people.
In some cases, she appears in visions to those who are destined to die in battle as washing their bloody armor. In this specific role, she gives the role of foretelling imminent death with a particular emphasis on the individual. Certainley there are also a few rare accounts where she would join in the battle itself as a warrior and show her favouritism in a more direct manner.
