‘Meditation Table IX’ is one of a number of meditation tables decorated by Scott. The large meditation device is painted with tempera and gold leaf. Not forgetting children who might crawl underneath, Scott also painted a much smaller meditation device in blue and red on the reverse of the table so that when it is horizontal there is a mini device underneath. Once vertical the table is just the right height for a meditator sitting cross legged on the floor.

Patrick Scott is considered one of the first exponents of pure abstraction in Irish art and a significant contributor to the development of modernist design in Ireland. He was elected a Saoi of Aosdána in 2007. Retrospectives of his work were held at the Douglas Hyde Gallery in 1982, and Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane in 2002 and 2014 when the exhibition ‘Patrick Scott: Image Space Light' brought together the most comprehensive representation of his 75 year long career.View Artist
