'Betrayed are the living, betrayed the dead
All are confused by a horse's head.' 

— Vernon Watkins, Ballad of the Mari Lwyd

The Mari Lwyd ("grey mare") is a trickster figure from Welsh tradition who blurs the boundaries between the living and the dead. This illustration was inspired by descriptions of the Mari in Susan Cooper's novel Silver on the Tree.
