Story and Art:
How do art and stories connect? Many pieces of art have their own story behind them or a fascinating connection to myths or folk tales. Other pieces invite interpretation and narrative.
Stories from Celtic countries of Scotland, Wales, Ireland and Brittany connect to many themes: the four element, transformation, women and enchantment. Tales for the young and old.
