Looking for a really extra-special Christmas present for your nearest and dearest? Want to make it a Yule you’ll never forget? If so, we have just the thing – but you have only four days to nab what will undoubtedly be a truly unique gift. After all, who would not be thrilled to find a three-foot-tall head of Odysseus (for example) under the Christmas tree, or a mythical bronze monster peeking out from a Christmas stocking?
Thanks to our very own sculptor-turned-writer Aidan Harte, you now have the opportunity to make someone’s wildest dreams come true! In between writing The Wave Trilogy for Jo Fletcher Books, Aidan’s been busy sculpting and casting his a new show, ITHACA, which debuted at the Sol Art Gallery in Dublin at the end of last month.
Now Aidan’s collection of striking portraits, elegant figures and fantastical creatures inspired by Odysseus and his adventures are joining the works of fellow Irish artists for the Irish Originals exhibition, opened Tuesday night by Irish designer and artist Paul Costelloe at the prestigious Mayfair Gallery in Cork Street. But you’ll have to move quickly: the works will be in residence only until Saturday 14th December!
