Tau Cross, Killinaboy
28.5″(72cm) x 21.25″(54cm) – framed behind glass
The beautiful hand and delicate touch of artist Phil Brennan, with this original watercolour painting of the Tau Cross, Killinaboy, Co. Clare. This stone ‘Cross’ is one of a very few, scattered around the country. It seems that historians are uncertain about their origins. This one has two heads carved on the top. The cross actually disappeared about 50 years ago when it seemed that the National Museum were preparing to remove it. However it was ultimately left outside, near St Catherine’s Church in Corofin some time later, when a museum and genealogy centre had opened there. The original ‘Tau Cross’ was put on display there and a replicat was erected on the original site at Killinaboy.
Artist, author and lifelong bird watching / nature consultant Phil Brennan, creates the most beautiful watercolour depictions of the stunning sights and birds that he has witnessed. Not just beautifully detailed, Phil’s knowledge of colour is superb and he always manages to bring such drama into his pieces. Phil has spent much of his life time doing field work in such spots of natural beauty along the Clare Coast and his experts eye for detail is refreshing.Phil’s artwork is detailed and both beautifully and delicately applied. This is a large artwork and is professionally framed behind glass.
