40″ (102cm) x 30″ (76cm) – unframed – oil on canvas

Skellig Michael soared in popularity most recently due to being linked to the filming of Star Wars, but prior to this somewhat unusual claim to fame, the island was already a UNESCO World Heritage Site that attracted many thousands of visitors every year. An awe inspiring island off the South West Coast of Kerry, with an incredible heritage, it is home to a monastic settlement, called St Fionnan’s, which dates all the way back to the 6th century. This striking oil painting by Kaye Maahs, is so wonderfully atmospheric; depicting, incredibly well from a sea vantage point, the island looming up in front of you; large and powerful. The darkness and ruggedness of this large rock, only confirming in your mind how difficult it must have been for those monks all those generations ago, to live out here, in stone huts, praying for all our souls.
Unframed on canvas, this large oil painting by Maahs, with her confident brush strokes and extraordinary use of colour, imbues rather an emotional and spine tingling response; perhaps in the way that this island itself does, when you find yourself in front of it for real.

Another excellent piece of original art by contemporary Irish artist, Kaye Maahs.

Unframed – hugely impactful piece of original art – strongly collectable work –

 

Your Shipping Choices Explained

NOTE: Due to Covid 19 areas are experiencing delays and some restrictions on deliveries – please enquire directly with us if you are concerned. 

We generally use the postal service here in Ireland, called An Post. It is very reliable and we take the utmost care in packing all our pieces professionally to ensure that have the very best chance of arriving safely in their destination.  This option would be at your own risk.

We can also offer you our own cargo insurance at a reasonable price – weight and piece dependent. Please enquire with us for this option. (This will also be packed by us and carried by An Post as above)

Taking into account the delicate nature and cost of your purchase, if you would prefer it travel in a specialized and insured Art Box with an outside Art Handler, then this can be arranged.  For paintings up to and including the size 120cm x 100 cm – prices with an insured professional courier, range from €75 – all the way up to €475 (size and location dependent) NOTE: This option will take considerably longer as we will have to outsource it and get quotes for you before we proceed.

For paintings or items falling outside of those largest dimensions then a further discussion is required – as it may need to have a bespoke crate to be built for it and a further cost will apply.
