Thomas Merton


Shipping to United States: Free


Thomas Merton is part of the Abbey of the Arts Dancing Monks Series.

This print measures 5"x10" and is mounted on an 11"x14" matteboard.

Thomas Merton was an American Catholic writer and mystic. A Trappist monk of the Abbey of Gethsemani, Kentucky, he was a poet, social activist, and student of comparative religion.

Merton is pictured here with his camera. Evan Gillespie of the Tribune said this about Merton's photography: "Merton's goal for the photographs was one of spiritual and intellectual transcendence, but they function on an aesthetic level so pure as to be visually transcendent as well. That's almost too much to expect from photographs and an achievement not often seen these days."

Luv this levitating, whirling dervish take on Fr Tom Merton, my personal exemplar: a contemporary saint and inter-religious pilgrim. Got two of artist Marcy Hall’s ‘Dancing Monk’ Merton prints, one for me and one for my son who is named Thomas after Merton. Great helper elf logistics!

I love my new Merton icon! It was shipped very quickly & arrived in great shape.

This icon is delightful, well done, and so helpful for contemplation and simply adding to our Quiet space! I have been spending a lot of time with Merton and this makes me smile!
