YOU & I ARE EARTH, 1661 (A HOLIDAY SHIRT)

YOU & I ARE EARTH, 1661 (A HOLIDAY SHIRT)

Regular price $28.00 Sale

In the Museum of London there is a white earthenware plate from the seventeenth century bearing the inscription "You & I are Earth, 1661." Recovered in modern times from a London sewer, the plate is made of earth; it has come out of the earth and confronts the viewer with their own earthliness. It is a reminder of mortality, at once accusing and sympathetic: not ‘as I am, so will you be’, but ‘as I am, so are you.’ Can this be read as anything other than a love poem?

"The Song Cave" is printed on the front of the shirt, while "You & I are Earth, 1661" is printed on the back of the shirt.

Only available through the end of 2022.
