This is Gwenell my second sculpt in my Celtic Female Warrior collection, based on a tribe that existed in the mid first century in Caernarfon, North Wales, called The Segontiaci tribe.

An interesting concept. Yet, why draw together two different cutures? "Elfin" or "Elven" is Germanic, whereas "Celtic" (a term now considered historically redundant as it implies a cultural, national sense of which there is no evidence for) is generally used to identify people of non-Roman, north and western Europe who were not "Germanic" (in the Roman sense). Perhaps Celtic-Sidhe or Celtic-Fairy/Fay would be more accurate to what you are trying to suggest. 2

As to the art; beautifully and richly painted, with a wonderful sense of movement and tension. Considering the warrior-centric nature of "Celtic" peoples, it represents feelings of watchfullness and danger very well.
