Celtic mythology is a wonderful compendium of fantasy rooted in green meadows and rough seas. Humid lands spotted by veils of fog, dotted in turn by strange stone monoliths where circular symbols full of magic and enigmas are registered...
Celtic histories are based on a polytheistic mythology originated in the Iron Age. Although it is true that they have a close contact with the Roman culture, Gala and Celtiberian, the Celts, they conserved in their turn some bases of their people that endow it with a special "supernaturality", always linked to their lands and traditions.
Morrigan, is nothing more and nothing less than the dark Lady of Death, destruction and warrior woman of Great beauty.
He lives in every war conflict, in all wars or confrontation.
It takes the shape of a crow and hovers between the smoke of the battle and the heat of the struggle. Its role, is to instill value to the soldiers, and not only that... It gives them strength, anger and rage.
The name of Morrigan means spectral queen, the term mor is a term used in the antiquity associated with terror, which has derived in the English term maere which means "nightmare" and in the Scandinavian Mara with the same meaning. While Rigan, it is always translated as "Queen". Together these terms and chords with the old Celtic language give rise to Phatom Queen, or "The Phantom Queen". On the other hand in certain parts of the Irish territory, it was known as Mórrígan, where the term Mór means great ("great"), hence the consideration of "the Great Queen".
Although it is associated with death and war, it is also linked to renewal, love and sexual desire.
This warrior woman comes to symbolize both the end and the beginning, the pleasure and the violence. A suggestive lattice of the Celtic universe printed in the evocative figure of the goddess Morrigan, a dual goddess capable of destroying and giving life.
