Maeve, Queen of the Fairies
Maeve, the Intoxicating Queen of Desire and Power is also known for Pleasure, Honey Wine and as the Queen of the Fairies. She is a goddess to be reckoned with. Her name translates to "she who intoxicates". Indeed, she is renowned for her prodigious appetites for sex, power, and drink. A great warrior queen, she coveted the famous brown bull of Ulster. She schemed and wreaked havoc until he was hers, not to be denied her desires. She embodies obsession, addiction, bloodlust and battle. Maeve is thought to be the progenitor of Maab, the English queen of the fairies.
Highlights of the detail of the Maeve Statue
The Queen holds her chalice and sits on her elaborate throne with wings outstretched. The tips of her wings curling around the chair posts and the Queen Bee above her. She is bejeweled from head to toe in jewelry and Celtic design and a large ornate crown sits upon her head as a crow perches on her arm and a squirrel on her shoulder.
At her feet is a finely detailed cauldron, lid (dual purpose also as a shield) and athame. The pedestal upon which she sits has more detail of a skin rug and a Celtic border. On the back, you find a balance of crossed spears, Celtic flowing design, Oaks and Acorns. In the center is a horned steer with the sun rising behind. She measures 10 3/4 inches tall x 6 1/2 inches x 7 inches and is cast in resin and hand painted.
