Description

St Brendan’s Boat

Standing on a hillside in a field overlooking Bantry Bay, this ancient carving is held to celebrate St Brendan’s voyage in a curragh to America, several centuries before Columbus. St Brendan is the patron saint of sailors and travellers. From a design by Kathleen Smyth, hand finished in pure bronze, this comes in a presentation box, which measures 9 x 6 inches (22 x 15cm).

Artists Brian Scott-McCarthy and Kathleen Smyth founded the Wild Goose Studio in 1970.  Together with other leading Irish artists, they created a unique range of artefacts that take their inspiration from their rich cultural heritage and the contemporary world.  Each piece starts with an inspiring thought, an image or an emotion and is given a physical form by their craftspeople.
