EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the enigmatic allure of "Long Meg and her Daughters" a Bronze Age stone circle nestled in the picturesque landscapes of Cumbria. Steeped in legend and mystery, this neolithic henge has long fascinated both historians and folklore enthusiasts alike. According to local lore, these ancient stones were once believed to be a coven of witches who met their fate at the hands of a Scottish wizard, turning them into petrified figures frozen in time. This mythical tale adds an air of enchantment to an already awe-inspiring site. The composition beautifully showcases the scale and grandeur of this prehistoric enclosure. The towering figure known as Long Meg stands proudly amidst her smaller companions, aptly named her daughters. Against the backdrop of an expansive sky, their weathered surfaces tell stories that span millennia. Keith Wood's expert eye for detail allows us to appreciate every intricate feature etched into these timeless stones. From the rough texture created by centuries of exposure to nature's elements to the subtle variations in color that hint at their age-old origins, each element is meticulously captured with remarkable clarity. As we gaze upon this mesmerizing image, we are transported back through time – connecting with our ancestors who once walked amongst these very stones thousands of years ago. It serves as a poignant reminder that even after countless generations have passed, there remains an enduring connection between humanity and its ancient past.
