My first impression was, "Wow". Most of the time, if you type in 'pagan', one gets pentacles and scenes of nature. No complaints there, but the Handbinding ritual was completely unexpected.

The iconography is beautiful. the way it just, pops, it really looks good.

A few pointers: the focal point is in the center, and this is a little cliche. But, I do realize, in order to do this, it would render the text unreadable.

Otherwise, it is a beautiful work, with the metallic tones harmonizing with the metallic tones of the dagger. I thoroughly enjoy this piece, and I look forward to others.

Congrats on the handfasting!
This is simply amazing! I really admire these sort of ceremonies and rituals, even though i'm christian. Well, i'm fading out of it, but you know what i mean.

It looks like a Witch / Wiccan ritual to be specific.

And congratulations on the hand-fasting.
