This project aims to open a dialogue for my generation on the societal pressures our mothers and grandmothers faced due to Catholicism in Ireland. Also, to acknowledge the ‘Catholic Guilt’ that has bled down to younger generations. My dissertation, entitled ‘Three Female Figures in Catholic Sacred Art’, greatly inspired the project. It focused on the Virgin Mary, Mary Magdalene and Eve. I looked at symbolism surrounding women in Catholic sacred art. I aimed to allow women of my generation to physically and symbolically wear these pressures which Catholic women faced, living in a much more Catholic Ireland. I have used a Bishop’s mitre as a canvas for my agenda to enforce the idea of Catholicism in the project. I focused on symbols such as the lily, almond and mandorla and practiced techniques that are used in ecclesiastical dress and Catholic sacred art.
