[going to be trying out some new themes on this eshrine over the next few days. please don’t hesitate to send me a message on echtrai if a theme doesn’t work on your computer or the colors make things hard to see or if anything else is wrong.

I would like this eshrine to be as accessible as possible for everyone, so don’t hesitate to speak up if it’s not for you. I will remove this message when I’ve settled on a new theme so it doesn’t crowd the eshrine space.]

Three of the four oldest authentic harps to survive are of Gaelic provenance: the Trinity College Harp preserved in Trinity College Dublin, and the Queen Mary Harp and the Lamont Harp in the National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh.

The last two are examples of the small low-headed harp, and are both made from hornbeam, a wood not native to Scotland. All three are dated approximately to the 15th century and may have been made in Argyll in South-West Scotland.

Omg I started these too long ago. I’ve been trying to design these little medallions (I don’t feelike ‘sigil’ is the right word) for the gods I regularly welcome into my home, but so far these are the only three to work out. They’re about an inch and a half across.

As Of Yet Unnamed Lady Whose Identity Eludes Me: a pinecone surrounded by white leaves and topped by a star - I first saw her at dusk in an old forest.

“ Ill am I for this death, for I cannot hear anything through my ears, and I cannot see anything through my eyes, and there is not one pulse living in my heart for the grief of my father. ”
