This image forms part of Des Kilfeather's body of work and eBook, James Joyce's Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, a Visual Response.
It makes key social and religious references and provides an insight into James Joyce's philosophy and early 20th Century Catholic Irish culture.
The first indirect reference is to male sexuality with more directly to Religion and Politics.
The body of work comprises 40 prints and the remains of the book as an artefact plus publication on Google and Amazon as a low cost eBook artist's book.
