. . . . . . . . .
A young Brigid is taking a brief rest in an oak-shaded bower; a lantern illuminates her book and musical instruments lie at her side.
A dog playfully chases butterflies in front of an oak keg, and an ancient bronze Celtic angel flies in front of a flame.
Inside the bower are also a basket of eggs, a rooster, a sack of seeds, and Brigid's Cross. In the background are cattle, a stork and a traveler (who just happens to be St. Expeditus).
