Dahud-Ahes, is an ancient,  long forgotton Goddess of the mythical downed city of Ys.

On the reverse of this card are Julie’s words of devotion to Dahud-Ahes :

Dahud-Ahès, Breton Goddess of the Land and of the Sea

She is Dahud – the ‘Good Witch’, and Ahès – the Key Holder

Untamed and free, she is the wild one, who refuses to bow to patriarchy

To protect the ancient wisdom of the Mother Goddess from Christianity

She chose to hide her kingdom in the deep sea of the Unconscious

She became the mysterious and feared Marie-Morgane

ruling in the Underworld

Waiting to rise again from the depths as Priestess

To be the voice of the land and of the seas

to bring back the ways of the Goddess.

Dahud was raised in Brittany by her father the pagan King Gradlon of Cornwall

and her mother Malgven, a bansidhe -woman of the faery-mounds

Dahud loved to run wild in the forest with the Horned God Cernunnos,

and celebrate sensual pleasure, abundance, and the power and freedom of femininity

Refusing to let Christianity oppress her people

one night Dahud, together with Cernunnos

stole the golden key to the city gates, which hung on a chain around her father’s neck.

They opened the great door to the Ocean,

letting the waves submerge Ker-Ys – her ‘city in the depth’

thus saving it from the ravages of the Church by hiding it in the Underworld

Dahud still lives there, until she can rise again with her kingdom

Once again, the bells of the city will be heard across the Sea….

Description

Dahud-Ahes Goddess Art Gift Card by Julie Collet

Julie Collet, originally from Brittany, France felt a calling from an ancient forgotton Goddess of the land there, Dahud-Ahes, of the mythical drowned city of Ys. Julie describes Dahud as  “Untamed and free, she is the wild one, who refuses to bow to patriarchy”

Julie has also spent time living in Bolivia caring for rescued pumas, where she first felt what “Wild” meant! She discovered her artistic talents later when she decided to leave the jungle to travel to Glastonbury last October and commit to start training as a Priestess of the Goddess, something she felt was very important that she had to do.

She painted her amazing interpretation of Dahud, and has painted her way through the  festivals of the wheel of the year through the symbolism of a silhouette, embodying the Goddess and the shadow of every woman – naked, raw… forever Wild.

“The “shadow woman” has become a kind of signature now. She is an image that speaks to me for many reasons. First because as the Goddess, She has no real identity. As priestess, or woman, she is all of us.  She has no face, her skin and hair have no colour.  She is just “woman” and carries the feminine essence. Finally, I work a lot with the shadow side of things.  I believe our gifts always start by being hidden in our shadow, and only if we are brave enough to face the Dark Goddess.  She will reveal the amazing treasures she was hiding.  To me, this shadow woman represents the primal essence and strength of woman and Goddess.”
