Sinead Giblin- “Cormac Ulfada (The Last High King of Ireland)”

On June 4, 2011 Skull-A-Day celebrated Skull Appreciation Day with an exhibit of over 100 skulls at Gallery 5 in Richmond, VA. If you didn't have a chance to make it to the gallery while the show was up, we now proudly present: "Skull Appreciation Day - The Exhibition".

Sinead Giblin- “Cormac Ulfada” (The Last High King of Ireland) $120.00

Sinead Giblin was born and lives in Dublin. Has always been a great lover of art and craft from a very young age and comes from a long line of painters and other creative enthusiasts.

Cormac mac Airt (son of Art) or Cormac Ulfada (long beard), is said to have ruled from Tara, the seat of the High Kings of Ireland, for forty years, and under his rule Tara flourished. He was famous for his wise, true, and generous judgments. The end of the reign of High Kings of Tara came with the conversion to Christianity, there continued to be Kings in Ireland up until the twelfth century but they now ruled with different rules, and the celtic legends were changed to feature saints, including St. Patrick in the story of Tír na nÓg.

The 2011 Skull Appreciation Day - The Exhibition was a collective art show celebrating the 5th anniversary of Skull-A-Day.com and its tremendous audience of artists and readers.

Throughout year 5.0 we will be featuring artwork from the show a few times a week. This is a chance to see all of the excellent skulls that were on display, and FOR SALE. Some of these pieces may still be available and this is a wonderful opportunity to own an original piece of skullriffic artwork. There are many well known artists who have contributed very reasonably priced works and many of them have donated their portion of the sale to benefit a great charity, the Richmond Peace Education Center.

Please take a moment to view all of the remarkable work that was created for the onset of this annual festivity. Your skull will appreciate you for showing it some love.
