The logo used by the Abbey Theatre, Ireland’s national theatre, is based on the original woodcut of Queen Maeve by Elinor Mary Monsell.
Abbey Theatre logo hat pin – 35 × 23cm raised antique (or unpolished) silver nickel plated metal with black colour infill.
In 1904, the year the Abbey first opened its doors, W.B. Yeats commissioned Elinor to create a wood cut engraving using images from Irish mythology. The image displays the Irish Wolfhound (symbol of Ireland), Queen Maeve and in the right hand corner the symbol of a rising sun. This famous image went on to be used as the Abbey’s logo which continues up to current day.
