Da Mare (the nightmare)

Personal Project

In European folklore, the Mare is a nightly creature that attacks people in their sleep and plagues them with bad dreams (night-mare).


The project is an experiment in illustration, in depicting something that is invisible, but nevertheless frightening, via the representation of those behaviours and trinkets and amulets that are supposed to protect the sleeper from the frightening creature.
