The Men of Aran - “Pulling together”
This beautiful Rynhart bronze sculpture is a touching tribute to Irish heritage. The men of the Aran Islands used to carry their traditional fishing boats (known as a currach or naomhóg, or 'little saint') to the sea everyday to bring back their catch to sustain their community. They also wore the traditional Aran sweater woven with Celtic knotwork, which represented prayers to keep them safe at sea. Lore has it that the seas around the islands were so dangerous that fishermen of times past wouldn't bother learning to swim, since they knew they'd have no chance against the wild currents. This handmade work of art is a testament to the strength of the Irish people and makes an uplifting addition to a home. The sculpture was handmade in County Cork, making this the perfect authentic Irish gift.
