This raven design includes the Scottish Gaelic saying ‘Tha fios fithich agad’ and the Irish translation: ‘Fios cionn fiagh’, meaning, ‘You have the knowledge
of a raven’s head’.
Dramatic and beautiful birds, ravens have long been known to be intelligent, having been observed as both playful and great problem solvers.
Often associated with battle, death and prophecy, ravens feature heavily in world mythology, including Celtic and Norse myth. The Irish Triple Goddess, the Morrígan was said to be able to turn into a raven, as could The Cailleach, ‘Hag of Winter’, from Scottish folklore. In Welsh folklore the severed head of King and giant Brân
Fendigaidd could tell prophecies(his name means Blessed Raven).
Also considered to be the messengers of the gods, Odin had two ravens named Huginn and Muginn, who brought him news from Midgard.
Mireog take inspiration from Irish and other Celtic languages, folklore, history and the natural world to create the designs.
