"Beltane is powerful celebration of fertility and dance and ritual- very visually exciting for us artist types. It is a great time of the year for handfasting and still one of the most popular times for people to get wed. Fire plays heavily in the rituals, for clearing the air, bringing change and renewal. I have represented fire with the crimson reds and the coat of a fox in my piece. Dance is also a powerful way to move the air and stir up energies- we especially associate the Maypole dance here in Britain with Beltane celebrations." - Anita Inverarity
