This sculpture is beautiful! I was in the morrigan house at school but our symbol was a sword with a black crow over it. Sharon Aur
replies: "Hi there,
Yes I saw that symbol when I was researching about her. I wanted to make my own interpertation of how I saw her in my minds eye. I wanted to portray her in a powerful, poised stance, ready for any threat that came her way ! "

Wonderful work! Since your fingers appear in some of your other gallery pics, I’m guessing Morrigan is about about 6-inches tall in her pose, is that correct? If so, the detail you’ve put into her armour at such a small scale is astounding! Sharon Aur
replies: "Hi John,
From the bottom of her lowered knee to the tip of the black horn on her head is approx 9 inches. They do vary in size, but most of their heads are 1- 1.5" ( measuring from the chin to the forehead, where the hairline starts, not to the top of the whole head) and they are anatomically correct, I always give them long limbs though as I feel they look more striking when they are tall, and I dont use wire armatures, I have my own method, and their bodies are mixed media. The Morrigan is for sale. Glad you like her, and thank you for your comment.

WOW. I love the armour detail and the silvered feathers in her crown - clearly not mortal but not a goddess afraid to get her hands dirty!
A note for future incarnations of the crow - Ireland only has hooded crows: all-black corvids over there are likely to be young rooks. At any rate, the crow here is both wonderfully lifelike and strangely adorable, given it seems to be caught mid-battlecry. Very well done! Sharon Aur
replies: "Hi there,
Thank you for your comment, really appreciate it. Its actually a carrion crow. I did research ’The Morrigan’ before creating this piece, found the information on the crow on this site.

She is a tricky one, and that site has probably the least confusing summary of her and her aspects/subdeities I have ever seen...it’s likely they just meant ’crows who eat carrion’ at the top there, since you see the translation of that bit of The Cattle Raid renders the word ’hoodie crow’ (actual carrion crows are found in England and parts of the Scottish Lowlands):
Hoodie-Crows shall pick
The necks of men!
Blood shall gush
In combat wild!
Skins shall be hacked
Crazed with spoils!
Men’s sides pierced
In battle brave,
Mien of braves;
Upon them comes
Lines shall be strewn
Their race die out!
...caw caw caw! Your sculpture remains one of the finest images of the Morrigan I’ve encountered, regardless. You have some amazing work in this gallery in general, too.

She’s a beauty! From the thumbnail I thought she was a painting until I opened it up! Wow, so much tiny detail, I don’t know how you do it! Sharon Aur
replies: "Thank you Lindsay.
With many sleepless nights, head banging and bouncing off the walls, and no toilet breaks ! thats how I do it ! It really can be trying at times, but Ihave this thing I always say to myself whch is - ’theres no such word as cant ’

I’m a lifelong fan of The Morrigan. This is the best Morrigan I have ever seen in my life. Absolutely fantastic work.
