ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The High Man is a mysterious giant warrior figure, made up of ancient roads, in Ireland. The discovery of this enormous effigy in modern times seems like a revelation with a so far unknown message for us. Its timing is extraordinary given its potent symbolism throughout early Irish myth and history and its cosmic significance. The High Man is located in an area steeped in myth and covered with the scattered monumental remnants of ancient history, including the world-famous 5,000-year-old passage-mounds Newgrange, Knowth and Dowth. The area where the enormous warrior geoglyph is located has the ancient name Ferrard, meaning 'High Man'. This area was also known as Muirthemne, the home of the warrior Cúchulainn, who battles alone against the Connaught army in the Irish mythic epic Táin Bó Cuailnge. The modern-day County of Louth takes its name from Cúchulainn's father, Lugh, whose inspiration was no doubt taken from the constellation Orion. Another great mythical character who might inspire The High Man is Amergin, the figurehead of the Milesians, who came to Ireland to take it from the ruling Tuatha Dé Danann. Amergin was known as "Bright Knee" and places his foot on the shore of the Boyne River, just like the High Man does. Amergin is buried at Millmount, in Drogheda, which coincides with the location in Orion of the star Rigel, meaning 'Bright Knee'. Read more about this fascinating discovery at www.thehighman.com
