Bronze sculpture by Charlie Mallon, packaged in wooden box with a handmade Irish linen bag.
Embarr was the horse of Manannan Mac Lir, the Celtic god of the sea. It carried Niamh across the sea from Tir Nan Og where she met Oisin, son of Fionn mac Cumhaill. Oisin returned with Niamh to Tir Nan Og.
Three hundred years later Embarr carried Oisin back to the land of men.
Oisin was regarded a great poet, there are many legends about him in both early Irish and Scottish texts. His grave is said to be in Glenalmond, and also in Cushendall.
This sculpture has been cast using the ancient 'lost wax' process, or 'cire perdu'. The patination developed naturally in the earth.
