Screenprint by David Rooney,
Irish illlustrator, inspired by the story of Diarmuid and his half brother.

Hand pulled screen print on Fabriano 220 gsm with Guinness black ink

This work is based on the story Diarmuid.  The steward of Aengus the greatest magician in Ireland fathered a child by the wife of Donn a member of the Fianna. Donn was away on the battle field with Fionn Mac Cumhail. He had arranged for Aengus to foster his son Diarmuid.  On his return Donn was enraged that his wife had a child by another man, and he killed the child.  But the steward cast a spell that turned the dead boy into a great boar.  He prophesied that the half-brothers would kill each other. To frustrate the prophecy, Aengus placed a binding vow, a geis, on Diarmuid never to hunt wild boar.
