Tuam Spirit Babies - Edel Lowry

By Edel Lowry
Here's the latest contribution to our Tuam Spirit Babies exhibition from Edel Lowry who's based in Castletown, Ballycumber. 

Edel mentioned a while back that she was out for a walk one day and out of the corner of her eye noticed a crushed dog rose hip on the ground. Immediately the children from the 'homes' came to mind and encapsulated in her beautiful piece are the words...full of potential...yet not allowed to bloom. 

The rose buds are crushed in behind the glass and the overall image is very potent. 
Thanks to Edel (who's always a source of wisdom) for taking the time and effort.  #Tuamspiritbabies
