Mari Lwyd


The Class of 2018's collaborative publication "Wunderkammer" (a place where curiosities, and rarities is exhibited), featured artwork from every graduating student. Each page is unique, and expresses an interest of the illustrator.

My artwork depicts the Mari Lwyd: a Welsh, tradition where a horse skull, adorned with cloth, flowers and ribbons, is paraded through town and challenges families to a battle of rhyming verse.

The Mari Lwyd is one of the most ancient of a number of customs, with which people in Glamorgan, and Gwent use to mark the passing of the darkest days of midwinter.
