The 12 Apostles, Catacol

by Michelle Cohen

  • Category: Painting
  • Medium: Original: Mixed Media on Glass
  • Dimensions: 63 x 35 cms


Michelle has painted on 2 layers of glass to create depth to the painting. Each window represents one of the 12 Apostles in Catacol.

The 12 Apostles are located a stone's throw from the beach in the tiny village of Catacol. Each of these fishermen's cottages has a different upper window and their wives would light a candle when the men were at sea, so that each man would know which house was signalling.

Complete with an oak frame reclaimed from a whisky cask.

Image 51cm x 22.5cm. Frame 63cm x 35cm.
