The Sheela Na Gig is an image found across the British Isles in old churches. It is possible that at least some of the carvings older than the churches themselves. The images are of a woman, holding her own vulva open and are thought to be pre-christian images of the crone or hag goddess or dark goddess, holding their vulvas open as gateways for transformation and rebirth.

I have carefully pyrographed (burnt) an image on to a piece of English Yew wood. The altar piece is 5 inches in length.

The Yew is the final tree of the celtic ogham alphabet - it's associated with gateways, death and transitions. It is poisonous in all it's parts if ingested save for it's fruit.
