She looks out to you to connect, she is peaceful serene, an Angel. She is a reminder of the angels that walk amongst us: sometimes we meet them in a smile from a stranger, or simply know that they are there and that we can always ask them for guidance, help and protection.



Many of us have been programmed to believe that this is a world based upon survival of the fittest. The Lady of Light has come to remind us that we are never alone: think of the light to call her to walk with and guide you, protecting you from harm by shining her light on you.

The lower part of the sculpture has Celtic Knot work in the symbol of Triquetra (the Trinity).  Some Celtic meanings for the Triquetra symbol include

Body – mind- spirit
mother- father- child
other world- mortal world-celestial world

But here, its meaning relates to the ancient Celt’s understanding of the three Lunar, or Solar phases. We know that the Celts honoured the Great Mother Goddess Danu. Danu was considered as the mystic Mother Goddess of the Tuathe De Danann – the Celtic tribes that first landed in Ireland.

With the coming of Christianity to Ireland in the 5th century the church Christianised the Celtic Goddess and she became known as St Bridget.
