It's a depiction of Queen Medb, a voraciously sexual archetypal warrior queen from Irish mythology. Her hair and skirts are made from oak leaves symbolising resilience, and she is riding into battle aboard a bull.
It is said that it took 30 men to satisfy Medb's sexual appetite, and she had multiple husbands. Under Irish law at the time, the hierarchy of monarchy was based on property, and when one of Medb's husbands acquired a prize bull that tipped the balance of power in his favour, she stole the bull and plunged the country into civil war rather than cede power.
The shadow she casts is of an emaciated woman holding a baby and references the Mother and Baby Homes and the fall of the treatment of Irish women.
