Leyendecker. The illustration is Queen Meave, which is described as "the famous warrior-queen, Meave, tall and beautiful, with her white face and yellow hair, terrible in her battle chariot when she drove at full speed into the press of fighting men, and 'fought over the ears of the horses.'"
The powerful Queen Maeve shows a beautiful blonde Nordic queen. She could be viewed as a celtic princess or ancient Gaelic goddess, sitting upon her Celtic throne looking quite like a regal goddess. Queen Maeve is a quintessential Nordic beauty, and very powerful, strong woman. Queen Maeve is a woman warrior, which might be associated with a Greek amazon warrior. In Greek legend, the Amazons were a tribe of woman warriors. Queen Maeve is quite a celtic warrior inspiration for women who aspire to greatness.
Queen Maeve is the perfect gift for the powerful woman in your life. She is a wonderful celtic muse - the perfect woman's power goddess that can help inspire the woman in your life to achieve her own power in life.
