Neolithic Standing Stones at The Ring of Brodgar Lighting

Neolithic Standing Stones at The Ring of Brodgar Lighting

£240.00

Description

Here’s a selection of small and medium lights in three different colour ways.

Small is approximately 17 x15cm plus wooden base

Medium is approximately 30x12cm plus wooden base.

I have used clear glass and fired Frits and enamels onto the surface. Each piece is individually cut, prepared and fired with the colours. It takes 3 x firings to achieve the finished image. The bases, made locally are cut to fit the exact curve of the glass, ensuring a snug fit. The bases are painted and sanded three times with a final coating of matte lacquer. An LED light is fitted into the base with an attached cable and plug.

The backgrounds to the Standing Stones are available in  Summer Solstice (red/orange/yellow/black/ Dark Blue)

Winter ( all enamels Whites/Grey/ pink/ black)

Evening (blues/purples/ black/dark blue)

The smaller lights depict the Standing Stones at Stenness and the larger lights depict the Standing Stones at the Ring of Brodgar.

All of these pieces are made to order and can also be ordered as glass curves without bases and lighting.

Small Light is £180.00   if you would like the small light please message me and I will forward an invoice to you.

Medium Light is £240.00 

 

Here are descriptions from Historic Environment Scotland about both sites

The Stones of Stenness today consist of four upright stones up to 6m in height in a circle that originally held 12 stones. The focus of the interior was a large hearth. The stones were encircled by a large ditch and bank, the form of which has been lost over time by ploughing.

The Stones of Stenness are part of the Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site, a series of important domestic and ritual monuments built 5000 years ago in the Orkney Islands.

 

The Ring of Brodgar comprises:

  • A massive stone circle, originally consisting of 60 stones – 36 survive today
  • At least 13 prehistoric burial mounds
  • A large rock-cut ditch surrounding the stone circle

The Scottish geologist Hugh Miller, visiting in 1846, wrote that the stones ‘look like an assemblage of ancient druids, mysteriously stern and invincibly silent and shaggy’.
