Manannan mac Lir is a God associated with the ocean and the Otherworld of Celtic legend. This doll was made with cotton, polyester, and wool. His facial features were created with water color pencil and acrylic fabric paint. He holds a staff decorated with silver bells and wire.

He is an original, one of a kind art doll and is not a toy.

On a side note, Manannan was entered into a recent Druidic artisan competition f and won first place in the sacred art category!  I was really excited.  I've never entered any of my dolls in a contest before so it was really validating.

Thanks for looking!

Oh my gosh! Gorgeous. I live on the Isle of Man, so I've seen loads of interpretations of Mannanan but I love this one so much. No wonder you won first prize!

Thank you Aryante and Suziwuzi!  Wow - such a compliment from someone who actually lives on Manannan's island means a lot to me!  Thank you!

Thanks Maman.  Yeah...  I guess he does look sad...  I agree with your theory as to why!  I didn't want him to look too bubbly or goofy.  I was going for thoughtful but sad works too!
