"The Holly King" by Emily Balivet, 2010.
“In many Celtic-based traditions of neopaganism, there is the enduring legend of the battle between the Oak King and the Holly King. These two mighty rulers fight for supremacy as the Wheel of the Year turns each season. At the Winter Solstice or Yule, the Oak King kills the Holly King, and then reigns until Midsummer, or Litha. Once the Summer Solstice arrives, the Holly King returns to do battle with the old king, and defeats him. The Holly King them rules until Yule.
In some Wiccan traditions, the Oak King and the Holly King are seen as dual aspects of the Horned God. Each of these twin aspects rules for half the year, battles for the favor of the Goddess, and then retires to nurse his wounds for the next six months, until it is time for him to reign once more.”
Happy Summer Solstice everyone, welcome in the reign of the Holly King!

Some of the many wonderful creations from the mind of Ernst Haeckel. In addition to making kick-ass art, he also named and classified THOUSANDS of new species. Go Ernst.
