hi everyone!
There is the ancient Celtic concept of the "pale faced goddess" of the Celtic Otherworld to be kept in mind. That is the world of farie and the Tuatha de Danann ... Just like the Moon card where we see the pillars in the background and a wolf = wildness and a dog - one, that I would look upon as one of the mystical hounds of the Otherworld so often portraied in Celtic art.
By the way, the mut is white and white is the colour that to the old Celts indicates the supernatural - Now we see it here in the dog as well as in our priestess.......
