The Ancient Religion

The Celtic Mysteries took shape in the flux of in-between states … Bards and Druids evoked a supernatural landscape of spirits and omens, heroic deeds and wonder voyages, all echoed in the sinuous patterns, potent symbols and shape-shifting figures of Celtic art.

Here are the twilight of dawn and dusk; the dew and mist, neither air nor water; the warrior’s demi-divine frenzy; and the dream-state between life and death.
