May Morning | Art Print
This artwork from The Saxon Storyteller depicts traditional Morris Dancers, complete with their hobby horse character and brightly decorated costume.
Early in Spring mornings, dancers can be found gathering on the hilltops bringing in the new dawn. It is thought that some of the dances contain motifs from ancient fertility rites that have been morphed into what we see today as traditional dance.
Available as a single print or part of Matt's Folklore Print Series.

About The Artist
The Saxon Storyteller is an illustrator known for his incredible ability to capture the character and theme of artifacts and historical figures. Reminiscent of Saxon and Viking iconography, his subject matter ranges from members of the lore (such as Ragnar Lothbrok) to those of Tolkien (like Gandalf and other members of the Fellowship). You may also recognize his work as the key illustrator of the Nordic Mythology Podcast, where his images appear unique to each episode and its content. On Northern Fire, you will discover the artwork of Saxon Storyteller on clothing, prints, and pins.
