Danu, Earth Mother, Goddess of the Tuatha de Danann, at the entrance of the Newgrange Mound. See how her hand joins the inside and outside worlds. In the painting the spirals resemble solar systems and galaxies. I am showing worlds colliding and colluding as the Tuatha according to ancient legend originally resided within these ancient mounds. The Quartz on the front stone and Amethyst on the silver part are both from Achill Island, so emulate the much debated Quartz currently decorating the mound . Blue Quartz is crushed and mixed onto the Entrance stone. Spiral semi precious stones include, Goldstone, Black pearl, Malachite and Garnet from India and Labradorite from Russia. Labradorite and Garnet decorate her hair.
Labradorite is said to be a mystical stone, a bringer of light and it connects with universal energies.. It is also said to be a stone of esoteric knowledge.
