Pangur Ban, my cat, 'tis a like task we are at:
Hunting mice is his delight. Hunting words I sit all night.
-- "Pangur Ban", 9th century
GaelSong Exclusive! Monks of the Middle Ages were not all chant and no play. The light-hearted poem "Pangur Ban" shows one 9th-century monk's delight in his feline companion, fancifully comparing the cat's chasing mice to his own pursuit of knowledge. Here, artist Kevin Dillon illuminates the verse in the manner of monastic scribes. Gilded-vine frame, shown here, has easel back and hanger, 9" x 11". Also available in rustic wood frame (10 1/2" x 12 1/2") or unframed (8" x 10"). Click here for an example of the rustic wood frame.
