Bust of Pádraig Pearse made in British gypsum plaster

.

These busts are hand made at the Revival Arts of Bath studios in Bath.

The name of Pádraig Pearse is indelibly linked with the Easter Rising of 1916 and the fight for Irish freedom from British rule. This learned man, teacher, barrister, poet and writer was one of the signatories of the Proclamation who were shot at Kilmainham Gaol after the failed rising.

There are object featured around the base. For this bust we have included Pearse talking to a crowd in front of the General Post Office, Nelson's Pillar, the Irish Proclamation being nailed to a door, a revolver, an Irish harp and Éamon de Valera after his surrender.

The etch around the base reads - "THE FOOLS, THE FOOLS, THE FOOLS” 

Height - 13cm

Each bust is 13 cm high with flat back and felt base - great affordable gifts for the historian. All busts are supplied in a Famous Faces gift boxes.
