You could at least tried to make the countess look a bit more haggard
but what a pair of nashers
OK. I found the original. It’s not as bad as that picture.
I wouldn’t want it in my house, it’s pretty freaky!
it’s interesting how this type of art, while attempting to be standard copy and text, blandly cashing in on 1916, is still hegemonically political
the pearse one is a case in point. look at it, the text is off, unbalanced. it’s an translation of ‘Ireland unfree will never be at peace’ which Pearse said in O’Donovan Rossa’s graveside oration. Famous words – which he definitively said in Irish. Why translate them then? to obscure them, because they still (6 counties etc.) have resistance connotation
Unless Thomas Clarke was secretly from Kerry, shouldn’t that read “clench your teeth and never say die”?
Just thinking that. Never heard ‘clinch’ your teeth before
