EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases "The legend of Saint Brendan (Brandan), hero and Irish saint of the 6th century". The image depicts a significant moment in the tale, capturing the meeting between Saint Brendan and the Sirene. Engraved by an unknown artist in the 15th century, this piece is part of a private collection. Intriguingly, this engraving originates from "Die Wunderbare Meerfahrt des Hl. Brandan" published in Bale on February 19th, 1491. The legend itself revolves around Saint Brendan's extraordinary sea voyage, which forms a central theme throughout his story. Saint Brendan's encounter with the Sirene adds an element of mysticism to this artwork. As he navigates through uncharted waters, facing numerous challenges along the way, encountering mythical creatures like sirens becomes inevitable. The composition beautifully captures both the holy aura surrounding Saint Brendan and his boat as they face off against these enchanting beings. This engraving not only reflects religious themes but also delves into Irish mythology and folklore. Giancarlo Costa has skillfully preserved this historical masterpiece for us to admire today. With its rich symbolism and connection to medieval times, it serves as a reminder of our fascination with legends from centuries past.
