About the artwork:
The Banshee, or Bean Sí in Gaeilge, is a female spirit who heralds death in Irish folklore. She is a spirit who informs members of the Irish nobility of imminent death by crying, screeching, and clapping; a sound that is reminiscent of the Irish funerary practice called keening (caoinaedh).
