    John Duncan. St Bride - best thing in the National Gallery of Scotland and used to have a print hanging above my midden (bed). Story is that Bride/Bridget was taken by the angels to the nativity to serve as a handmaiden to Mary. There is a better legend which says that when Jesus was born it was actually twins. The first child was a girl and she was spirited away by the angels to begin the Celtic Church, where women were respected unlike in the patriarchal Church of Rome.

      John Duncan's gorgeous painting of the angels carrying St. Bride (Brigit) across the ocean (and back through time!) from her home in Ireland to be the Christ's foster mother and wet nurse.

      I love the work of the Scottish Symbolist, John Duncan. This one of angels carrying St. Bride to act as midwife to Mary on the eve of the Nativity is my fave.
