KING ARTHUR ,LADY OF THE LAKE AND EXCALIBUR COFFEE MUGS
Colorful ,whimsical and romantic, watercolor painting in soft blue,pink ,red, purple, violet, white colors by Alessandro Lumini 1989 ---------- Vivien , this mysterious female gave Arthur his sword, Excalibur. She stole Lancelot when he was a child and cured him when he went mad. She may be a Celtic lake divinity in origin, perhaps of the same kind as the Gwagged Annwn - lake fairies in modern Welsh folklore. Vivien may very well have been the Lady of the Lake in the Arthurian Legends and stories. She, sometimes called Nineve, Nimue, Niniane, etc., is best known as the woman who sealed Merlin in a cave or a tree.
