Finvara and Oonaugh

So a few months ago I read a book about Irish myths. They spent some time talking about Finvara and Oonaugh, the fairy King and Queen of the dead. Such interesting characters stood out and so I created this piece of art, basing the style on the illustrations of Aubrey Beardsley. So, it being high summer and green bean season (The Medieval food of the dead) have a bowl of green beans to salute this ethereal Lord and Lady.
