Blodeuwedd (pronounced blood-o-wee) by Mary Bird

Blodeuwedd (pronounced blood-o-wee)

Pastel on paper. 26x20cm. For sale. Professionally Framed.

In time, she fell in love with another and together, they plotted to kill her husband. For this ‘crime’, the magician transformed the child-like Blodeuwedd into an owl (everlasting wisdom).
