Pangur Bán

Abstract: Stuart (b.1927, Berlin) originally created Pangur Bán for the Dun Laoghaire Shopping Centre. Stuart, who has lived and worked in Ireland since 1951, fuses inspiration from her Bavarian background with her appreciation of Ireland's early Christian heritage in her work. The sculpture is based on a 9th century poem written in Irish found on the margins of a manuscript in the monastery of St. Paul, Austria.
