Beltane/Horned God

Last night Blue Horizon Oasis hosted a Horned God ritual. I am not really going to go into what Beltane is. There is more than enough information online :)

A wonderfully joyous ritual was celebrated to invoke the spring and Pan, and all things fertile. Incredible kudos to the work of Soror S. for all the work she did to pull the chaotic event together. Of course elqahar did an absolutely stunning job of bringing in the Pan-aic energies. Even if we invoked more than we bargained for.

The highlight of the evening for me was an authentic maypole. We bound two of the brethren to the maypole and entiwined them within it in the hopes that they would be blessed with fertility.

TRIVIA: And in celebration of Beltane

So it's been awhile since I've done any of my truly cruel trivia.

In celebration of Beltane, jnanacandra and I watched, "The Wicker Man." If you haven't seen this pearl I absolutely recommend it. I like many other fans live in terror not of the film that was mis-categorized as Horror in the early 70's. No, we live in fear of 2006 when Neil LaBlute directs Nicolas Cage in a remake of The Wicker Man.

That being said... On to the trivia...

My mind works in bizarre ways. I found a picture that in some miniscule way has a very definite tie to something in the Wicker Man. Take a look at the picture... make your best guess. Comments will be hidden initially but I will reveal them as people guess. :)

Ready for the last picture you might expect to see relating to Wicker Man?
