Céad Míle Fáilte to our next Special Run reveal – Lugh!
Done on the classic sculpt by Rich Rudish, Sham (mold #410) was originally part of Breyer’s Artist Series in the 1980s. Since this year also happens to be Breyer’s 70th anniversary, we’ve thrown a few throwbacks like this handsome guy into the mix!
Lugh (pronounced “loo”) has been done for BreyerFest’s Celtic Fling in a richly-shaded medium bay with a high-gloss finish and an unusual feature – a gulastra plume! This unique genetic anomaly was named for the Arabian stallion Gulastra, whose bay descendants were commonly found with a light or flaxen tail instead of a black tail.
With such a strong look about this model, we felt it fitting to name him after one of the most prominent gods in Irish mythology. Portrayed in the folklore as a warrior, a king, and a hero, Lugh is associated with oath-making, the truth, and law. He is celebrated during the summer harvest festival Lughnasadh, which takes place around August 1st.
We know it’s still cold and grey outside for much of the country, but it’s already March and summer will be here before we know it!
Keep your eyes on the BreyerFest blog – we’ve got more coming your way!
