Geometrika Brigid

It is time for the Celtic festival of "Imbolc," a late winter festival of fire and the birth of lambs. In Celtic Christianity it was adapted into the calendar and was celebrated as "Saint Brigid's Day," especially in Ireland. This geometrika honors the old traditions with a green "Irish" color scheme and a light brown abstraction of a "Saint Brigid's cross," woven out of straw just for the day. No groundhog need appear.
