This wonderful card arrived from Gwyneth in Cyprus. (no blog that I know of) I had to round up a map just to figure out where Cyprus is located. Geography is NOT one of my strong points but I do love receiving postcards from all over the globe. This is the first card from an International Celebrations Swap - St. Patrick's Day on Art We Mail. I wish you could feel/see all the texture in this card, it is amazing. The legend on the back of the card explains the front:
Saint Patrick is known for driving the snakes from Ireland.
I believe it is true that there are no snakes in Ireland.
(Hence my snakes on the postcard are in the sea)
Driving the snakes away was probably symbolic to
putting an end to the pagan practice of worshipping
a serpent symbol.
Thanks Gwyneth! I learned a lot from your Pretty Postal Art and I love this card. :o)
