Isian News - Brigantia 2015

Greetings Aset Shemsu! The 2015 Brigantia Issue of Isian News is now available online. This issue features reports from members, news from centers, an announcement from the Star of Tara advisory board and a beautiful painting by Olivia Robertson titled "Brigid of the Five-Fold Fractal" on the cover.

About the Cover

Olivia wrote the following explanation for this piece: “I have painted a five-fold Palladium myself, superimposing it over a silver Piscean Madonna… She has vermilion hair, very long, and she holds her baby girl, also with long red hair. The baby holds a doll with spiky red hair. The doll holds a mini-doll ********
She is Brigid holding Bride: Magdalene holding Sophia. Something was lacking. Were we only to diminish in consciousness? No! So I painted giant hands coming out of a tumultuous sky, enfolding the figure in a maternal embrace.”
