Brighid, once the Great Goddess – from which everything came and then returned to in death. Patron of the hearth, creativity, justice and healing. Goddess of perpetual flame who ignites the fire of inspiration in our head, the fire of passion in our hearts and warms our hands in her work that we carry out in community.

She is the Wise Woman of her people. It is she who dances between the worlds and petitions the spirits in asking where they should go to move camps, where will they find the Reindeer herds. It is she who brings new life into this world, holds the ceremonies and guides the rituals of life and then is there to midwife those lives on their journey onto the otherworld, back to the Great Mother.

This doll represents a heritage for many people. A symbol of longing for something we might never have experienced yet still our soul yearns for. This might be a different life with a peoples who had a very different outlook. It might be a calling, an ancestral yearning, a longing.
