My painting of The Nanteos Cup has been accepted by The National Library of Wales - Llfrgell Genedlaethol Cymru.
The cup is one of Wales’ most mysterious objects. It looks like the remains of a small, old wooden bowl and for many years was kept by the family living at Nanteos just outside Aberystwyth. Legend had it that it was the Holy Grail - the cup used at The Last Supper. It had healing properties, so it was claimed. A few years ago the cup was stolen and after it was recovered by the police the family entrusted the cup to the national library for safe-keeping and display. The words in my picture translate ‘and he took the cup’ and are taken from the Gospel account of The Last Supper.
A new work:
St Michael the Archangel - not as a medieval figure in armour, but as a 21st century combatant
