The Mari Lwyd art print offers a window into the ancient Welsh customs. In this Mari Lwyd art print, the skeletal horse from South Wales takes centre stage, knocking on homes during winter celebrations. Born from pre-Christian traditions, this hooded figure champions wassailing events, seeking to usher in good fortune and dispel dark spirits. As a vivid representation of seasonal change and community spirit, this print immerses viewers in the heart of Welsh folklore.
