Messe ocus Pangur Bán

Share Project :

Oftentimes a mouse will stray In the hero Pangur's way; Oftentimes my keen thought set Takes a meaning in its net. 'Messe ocus Pangur Bán' is a poem that was written in Old Irish in the margins of a medieval manuscript. It tells the story of a scholar and his cat, named 'white Pangur', and describes the parallels between their respective 'trades'. My band, Twigs and Twine, put this poem to music and I've wanted to make a proper illustration for it forever!
