- Horse Art Rhiannon is apart of my ongoing Celtic Mythology Series.
The Celtic Patron Rhiannon is the Goddess of horses & birds and is considered the counterpart of the Gaulish Goddess Epona. Most importantly she bringsof dreams and is a moon deity who symbolizes white horses in stories. Rhiannon commands singing birds that can wake spirits or grant sleep to mortals. Moreover she symbolizes the moon, enchantment, charms & poetic incantations.
Rhiannon is a major figure in the Mabinogi, the medieval Welsh story collection. For example Rhiannon appears mainly in the First Branch of the Mabinogi, and again in the Third Branch. She is a strong-minded Otherworld woman, who chooses Pwyll, prince of Dyfed (west Wales), as her consort, in preference to another man to whom she has already been betrothed.
Certainly she is intelligent, politically strategic, beautiful, and famed for her wealth and generosity. In the first branch of the Mabinogi, Rhiannon associates with horses, as well her son Pryderi. Subsequently she relates to the Gaulish horse goddess Epona. Consequently she and her son depicts as mare and foal. Like Epona, she sometimes sits on her horse in a calm, stoic way.
