Ancient, Medieval and  Renaissance Irish faces. Music from Strings & Stones Angelos Nikolopoulos plays the Lute and PachomiosTsvares stone percussion. The last face is Sir Neil O'Neil(?1658-1690) is shown in the richly ornamented costume of an Irish chieftain. Beside him is an Irish wolfhound, a valuable breed of dog whose export from Ireland was forbidden in 1652. At his feet is a rare suit of Japanese armour. This may be seen as a trophy representing victory over persecutors of Catholicism, among whom the Japanese were notorious at the time. (slight editing/blogger)
