Lammas, aka Lughnassadh, is a cross-quarter day, and a celebration named for the Celtic God Lugh. It is a day of games and competitions, traditionally to aid in the celebrations as well as to give people activities in between harvests.
As the first harvest holiday, it is a time of, not only thanksgiving, but also “firsts”: loaf, fruits and vegetables. Body and face painting as well as masks are all part of the Warrior Magick that plays such a big part in preparation for the games.
On the original quilt are deer, wine bottle, staves of wood, a sun-catcher, a mask, and a bowl of first vegetables as well as the pentacle, tree in season, and the Sabbat name.
This listing is for an ACEO print of an original appliqué wall hanging. It is one of a series of eight (8) that represent each of the eight pagan Sabbats (Samhain, Yule, Imbolc, Ostara, Beltane, Litha, Lammas, and Mabon).
