You Tube: Celestial Elf's Latest Masterpiece The Lammas Wickerman



Celestial Elf, one of Second Life's greatest machinima artists scores yet again with The Lamas Wickerman, celebrating the Celtic Sun God Lugh.  Here is what he writes:

Lammas, also called Lughnasadh (Loo-Nah-Sah) in commemoration of The Celtic Sun God Lugh, occurs at the beginning of the harvest season, in the Northern Hemisphere 1st August, in the Southern February 1st.
The word Lammas itself derives from the Old English celebration of loaf mass, harvesting the first grains which by nightfall made the first loaves of the season. As the grain is cut, some is stored to create new life in the spring. To harvest before Lammas could only be because the previous year's harvest had run out, a serious problem in agricultural communities, hence thanks for a harvest on time.

This video appears to be fully or partially filmed in Hinterland, an excellent area of several sims built by Tim Miraseau and highly reminiscent of the coast of Scotland. I photographed this area several times:  You can catch my photography (note there are duplicates) here:  https://picasaweb.google.com/eddie.thebeaver/HinterlandScotlandInSecondLife02
