The birth of IMAGINATION looking back and LOOKING FORWARDjoin us in a time week when we are invoking  and evoking Ireland , also celebrating the legacy of Joseph Campbell on his birthday.
From the caves of Lascaux, which have been called the ‘Sistine Chapel of the Palaeolithic‘….to the artists of today. Humans have been creating art for over 30,000 years. The 20th century artist, Picasso was influenced by the primal images found in the caves . Can hints from cave-painting also be found in the work of the Irish artist Louis le Brocquy….?  Are there stories of Irish SHAMANS?
