Saint Aidan

Saint Aidan of Lindisfarne was a monk who lived in the 7th century and who is celebrated today, 31 August, the day in which the Saint died in the year 651.

This year I wanted to celebrate this anniversary creating a small collection of works inspired by some depictions of this great Saint.
I mixed very different material: pictures of Saint Aidan's statue on the island of Lindisfarne, medieval miniatures and stained glass works, paintings and drawings.
