DescriptionCast by hand in the Wild Goose Studio, Kinsale, County Cork, Ireland. This Samuel Beckett quotation "All Poetry is Prayer" wall plaque has an outer shell of pure bronze with an inner core of cast resin material for stability. Each Wild Goose piece is made entirely by hand, with no two being exactly alike.
Since ancient times, bronze has been a highly prized metal for the making of tools, jewelry and statues. It is an alloy of copper, which was first mined in Ireland over 4000 years ago. Left to weather, it will acquire a green patina; polished it will shine like gold.
"All poetry is prayer" is a quotation from Samuel Beckett, Irish novelist, dramatist and poet. Arguably Ireland's greatest playwright, Beckett received the Nobel Prize for literature in 1969. Born in Foxrock, County Dublin and educated at Trinity College, Beckett spent many years abroad, mostly in Paris, where he developed a friendship with another well-known Irish author, James Joyce.
The design of this plaque is from an original carved inscription by Irish artist Thomas Little.
Approximately 7 3/4 inches wide, and 4 9/16 inches tall, and 3/8 inch thick. Plaque has a cord attached on the back for easy hanging.
