The image is taken from a painting by Pamela Budge of Croft Studios , Dunvegan (http://www.croft-studio.com) and is the first in a new series of Pabay 
stamps depicting Celtic Legends.
This stamp shows Niamh of the Golden Hair.Although the Celts had no straightforward Goddess of Love, such as the classical Venus or Aphrodite, they seem 
to have worshipped a nature goddess, often portrayed as a beautiful and desirable young woman. Such was NIAMH OF THE GOLDEN HAIR daughter of the Celtic God of the Sea
"-her golden hair hung down in tresses and at the end of each plait hung a bead. To some men her hair was the colour of the yellow flag iris which grows by the summer water: 
others thought it like ruddy polished gold. Slender and exquisite as a birch tree, of shape as sweet as the fine clover, of colour as fair as summer morning, she is the type of the
 glory of all lands...."
NIAMH chose a mortal man, OISON son of FINN, chief of the legendary Fenian Warriors of Celtic Ireland to be her lover, and went with him to TIR-NAN-OG the 
Celtic "Land of The Ever Young" which lies somewhere in the Western Sea, here they lived happily for three hundred years until Oison returned to Ireland to fulfil his destiny"
