The vibrant design on this A6 card was inspired by a trip to Gavrinis which is a small uninhabited island in the Gulf of Morbihan off the Southern coast of Brittany in France. The island contains a pyramid-shaped stone burial chamber and it's interior walls are covered with neolithic artwork. The structure is a tumulus (earth mound) covering a cairn (stone mound) covering a dolmen (stone burial chamber), which was built around 3500BC and has a diameter of 164ft (50m). To reach the burial chamber visitors must walk down a narrow 46ft (14m)-long passage the walls of which are decorated with carved patterns and symbols. At Winter Solstice, the sun shines down the passage and hits the back wall.
The picture is a high quality reproduction of a mono screen print that I produced in my home studio and is produced on A6 high quality recycled board and supplied with a white envelope in a cello packet.
It was the experience of sailing to the island of Gavrinis in France on a beautiful sunny day with the marvellous earth and sea smells creating a heady aroma as we arrived, that inspired this mono print.
