The Wheel of the Year

A Lunaesque Production

The Wheel of the Year is an annual cycle of eight seasonal festivals. In nature all things are considered to be a perpetual cycle of growth and retreat tied to the annual death and rebirth of the sun. Observing the cycle of the seasons and honoring the ‘Earth Mother’ has been important to many people in both ancient and modern civilizations. 

This epic project, inspired by the eight Pagan sabbats, took fifteen months to complete. It has been a truly wonderful creative and spiritual journey for the whole team.
