EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative graphic print by Judith Dobie, titled "Exhumation of Arthur and Guinevere," transports us back to the hallowed grounds of Glastonbury Abbey in Somerset during the medieval period. The year is 1193, and the solemn scene unfolds as monks, dressed in their robes, delicately unearth the graves of the legendary King Arthur and his queen, Guinevere. The abbey's graveyard, filled with crosses and headstones, creates a somber backdrop for this historic moment. The monks, with their serious expressions and focused demeanor, meticulously remove the earth from the graves, revealing the ornate stone coffins that lie beneath. The intricate carvings on the coffins hint at the wealth and power of the once-great king and his queen. The sun casts a soft, golden glow over the scene, illuminating the faces of the monks and adding a sense of reverence to the moment. The legend of King Arthur and Guinevere has captivated the imagination of people for centuries, and this graphic print beautifully captures the mystique and intrigue surrounding their final resting place. The exhumation of their remains was believed to have taken place at Glastonbury Abbey, making this location a pilgrimage site for those seeking a glimpse into the past. This poignant image invites us to reflect on the rich history and enduring legacy of these legendary figures.
