The Ancient Mariner
`God save thee, ancient Mariner,
From the fiends that plague thee thus! -
Why look'st thou so?' - "With my crossbow
I shot the Albatross."
For all our burdens and the wrong we've done.
what is it?
Inspired by the poem 'The Rime of the ancient Mariner' by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, I wanted to make a design that embraced the idea of having an albatross hung from your neck.
Ah ! well a-day ! what evil looks
Had I from old and young !
Instead of the cross, the Albatross
About my neck was hung.
An albatross-around-the-neck shirt is an awesome idea, whether or not it's connected to Rime. If the albatross were more recognizable, I'd buy it like that.
Hmm.. well thanks very much for your comments, I had the same feedback from friends, after looking at it for so long it's hard for me not to see the bird.
I also thought that it would be nicer abstract as some people might not find it appealing to have a dead bird on their shirt. Maybe I will get started on a new an improved version.
Yeah- I love the idea, but not the texture...at first I thought it was a towel..
