The winter season of Samhain is also the start of the ancient Irish year….any of the sets of cards below can carry greetings in celebration of the New Year.
Set One: Bonsai
Set Two: Madonnas
These Madonnas were created across the ages and represent many different impressions of the tender relationship between Mary and her son. In order, a Chinese Madonna in stone from St Mary’s Cathedral (St Paul), a Russian icon c. 1700, a recent carving in St David’s Cathedral (Wales), a wall fresco from Santa Casa in the Loretto in Prague, a small statue from Chalice Well in Glastonbury, and finally a Mexican Madonna from the Cathedral in Santa Fe.
Set Three: Angels
Whether you believe in guardian angels or not, angels appear in abundance in both scripture and art. This set of six comes from all over the globe. In order, they are a Russian icon c.1700, a stone carving from the Chalice Well, an icon of the Angel at the Tomb, the ceiling in Cork Cathedral, a Russian shrine c. 1800, and one of the Clarke windows in Killaloe (Ireland).
