This awesome sketch art card of Flidais from Celtic (Irish) Mythology is drawn by the very talented artist Loren Bobbitt :iconlorenross: for our Classic Mythology III trading card set.




Flidais (Flidas, Fliodhas, Fliodhais) - The woodland goddess, protector of wild animals and cattle.


In the Middle Irish glossary Cóir Anmann ("Fitness of Names") she is said to be the wife of the legendary High King Adamair and the mother of Nia Segamain, who by his mother's power was able to milk deer as if they were cows. Her name means "doe" and She rode a chariot drawn by deer. Her daughters were Fand, Be Chuille and Be Teite. Two were considered witches, and one was a fairy queen.


Flidais is a central figure in Táin Bó Flidhais ("The Driving-off of Flidais's Cattle"), an Ulster Cycle work, where she is the lover of Fergus mac Róich and the owner of a magical herd of cattle. The story, set in Erris, County Mayo tells how Fergus carried her and her cattle away from her husband, Ailill Finn. During the Táin Bó Cúailnge (Cattle Raid of Cooley) she slept in the tent of Ailill mac Máta, king of Connacht, and every seven days her herd supplied milk for the entire army. In Táin Bó Flidhais she has a favoured white cow known as "The Maol" which can feed 300 men from one night's milking.
