Mari Lwyd in photos: 06/01/2011

The Mari Lwyd tradition is one of the stranger elements in the Welsh cultural calendar. Celebrated in increasing numbers across Wales (and beyond it should be stressed), the Mari Lwyd today is largely an imagined revival, often dominated by Morris Dancers of one variety or another – in these images, you will find examples of the ‘border’ Morris Men. Imagined or not, such evenings are usually entertainingly alcohol driven occasions, marked by song, dance, and a collection of decorated deceased horses heads – enjoy.
