Ogham God by Nymla Ogham God by Nymla

This is a God.
I have not yet decided a name and history for this God.
But it sure is a God.
Of dreams and such.
I think its a little hard to see in that upper left picture, but theres dreamcather-like thingies tied on the horns.


I made this mask/headpiece for a celtic ogham-contest.
The ogham signes are carved all over those horns.


Me and a friend are now planning to make more masks and such with the same theme.
Build up stories for them all, how they are connected to each other.
Maybe we get to show them at an exhibition.

Stay tuned ;)



Oh and its made of: horns, sticks, beads, seashells, leather, sculpey clay, feathers, plaster etc.

Actually there was a god of truth, eloquence and prevision, who also invented the ogham scripture by watching the flight of the cranes.
He was called Ogmios, and I think he also had something to do with dreams, so this is quite fitting :D

I really like this outfit, the antlers look pretty cool and the details are wonderful!

It's beautiful... and the fact, that God has woman's eyes makes "him" even more fragile and full of mystery... I love it.
