Sadb was a cult warrior goddess in the County Kerry region and goddess of all the arts -and the mother of the warrior poet Oisin, son of the greatest of all the Fenian warriors, Fionn MacCumhaill. She was a shapeshifter who appeared as a deer to lure Fionn into her company and as a result of this tryst the poet Osin was born. She is remembered in many place-names in Ireland to this day.
This painting was originally commissioned by the Cahersiveen Music Festival in 2001. Cahersiveen translates roughly ‘The Fortress of Siveen or ‘Young Sive”.
The model was a friend of mine who complained at the time that she was a little over-exposed but bought a print for Christmas for her daughter last year and loves the image. Just took a while 🙂
