Inspired by pre-Christian Irish mythology, this piece depicts the Morrigan, a deity associated with war, fate and sovereignty. Often described as a trio of goddesses, the Morrigan was renowned for her ability to strike fear in her opponents and to hold wayward leaders accountable. Associated with the crow, known as Badb in Irish mythology, Sumner chose to illustrate this imposing figure transforming into a bird. "The Morrigan stands the test of time as a powerful reminder of female strength," says Sumner.
