    Product Description

    Eiocha of the Deep Waters Before the beginning of time, before the gods and people lived upon the land, all lived beneath the sea -  "Tir fo Thuinn" - Manannán's land beneath the waves. Eiocha - ancient Celtic Goddess of the Deep Waters - is a white mare made of sea foam - born on the shore between the land and the sea.  Eiocha ate the white berries (mistletoe) - the tears of the sea - that grew on a giant oak tree on the shore, and then gave birth to Cernunnos the Stag God. Together they made the sacred mare Goddess Epona - who created horses in memory of Eiocha.  The sea horse represents strength and creativity - as they change colors when threatened, and with their strong tails wrapped around the seaweed and sea plants, they resist the pull of the tide and currents..

    Giclee Printmaking

    Contemporary Print makers are beginning to use the Giclee digital print making process using archival Museum quality materials and inks to produce Fine Art limited edition prints. The word Giclee is from the French word "to spray". It is a high quality, plateless printing process that was developed in 1989, in which a fine spray of ink moves across the paper. It rivals lithography in its resolution and color range,and is fast becoming a favorite with artists. Robert Rauschenberg and David Hockney are among those using the technique. Prestigious museums such as the Guggenheim, the New York Metropolitan Museum, the Corcoran in Washington DC to mention a few, are enthusiasticaly embracing the use of Giclee printing from original art. Deep saturated colors, and fine tone resolution using archival water soluble inks and beautiful heavy archival papers produce rich prints which have outstanding fade resistance.
