Blodeuwedd Original Oil Painting by MiriamMorgan on Etsy, $300.00 15x20 inches Blodeuwedd is an oil painting from my Goddess series. She was the Welsh goddess of the night, also called "flowerface" and the "night owl". According to the myth, Blodeuwedd's face was created from the petals of nine different types of flowers, which accounted for her name "flowerface".
