- The Grey Mare -

Mari Lwyd Plaques and Figures

Mari Lwyd - the Grey Mare - is the central character of a midwinter festive tradition celebrated in South Wales, and elsewhere. Through the dark nights between Christmas and New Year, the Mari leads her unruly retinue from house to house, winning access by outsinging the inhabitants at each door, and, once inside, boisterous revelries ensue.

Mary Lwyd Plaques and Figures are available from Green Man Gatekeeper - The Lost  Museum Gift Shop in the Forest of Dean, and also from our Etsy Store

Each Maru Lwyd plaque and figure is handmade and hand painted

An alternative to the seasonal Nativity Sceene.
