Masterwork Machinima: The Story of Gwydion Caer Wydion, The Celtic Bard Born of the Trees, by Celestial Elf



Celestial Elf's latest masterwork is another treat for the ears and the eyes which continues his storytelling about two subjects dear to him; Celtic mythology and the threatened environment. Trees are a dominant motif in many of his works.

Celestial Elf writes the following about the subject of this machinima:

Gwydion is a Celtic Bard, Sorcerer and Trickster of Welsh mythology, appearing most prominently in the Fourth Branch of the Mabinogi, the Welsh Triads and the 14th century medieval Welsh book of poetry The Book of Taliesin by the Bard Taliesin, whose name means Radiant Brow. Here we hear Gwydion recite a verse from the Cad Goddeu - the Battle of the Trees, found in the The Book of Taliesin which tells the story of a battle fought between Gwydion and Bran.
