The figure of St.

Patrick holding a staff is deeply incised so that the figure is in high relief. The artist has become the leading practitioner of religious art in Ireland in 2004. This work shows the German influence of Ernst Barlach but also the rich area of early Irish Christian imagery and iconography. Purchased by the Art Fund with the assistance of the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.
