Here’s a festive new #SidewalkFriends drawing.
It started with a dried patch of something (paint?) that I spotted on a cold winter morning. I took a photo and used it as inspiration for a Mari Lwyd.
The Mari Lwyd is a wassail-singing folk character from South Wales traditions. It goes door to door challenging occupants to a battle of wits. If victorious, the Mari Lwyd wins food and ale, then grants the household good luck for the following year.
