The Singing Swans
The singing swans were the children of the king, Lir of the Tuatha Dé Danann, who married a war-witch named Aoife. Jealous of his children by a previous wife she transformed them all into swans. Lir had a harpist play to the children in swan form as they nested on Lough Darravaragh while awaiting reincarnation to human form over 400 years of exile.
No man in Ireland has sharper awareness of what we inherit from the ancient past than Jim FitzPatrick. Not only is he an authority on Celtic art, his own highly individualistic work embodies all the Celtic virtues; vivid imagination, love of sumptuous detail harnessed to a breathtaking capacity for taking pains and - most significantly of all - a sense of the mystery that hides behind the material world.
He is the most eloquent Irish poet ever to wield a paintbrush.
