Return of the Eagles...
After a visit to Orkney as a research trip to gather images, visit ancient places and to get a feel of the couture. This is my first painting using symbolism and a sea eagle. Inspired by one of the most fascinating ancient archaeological sites located at South Ronaldsay cliffs.
The Isbister Chambered Cairn - better known today as the 'Tomb of the Eagles'. The tomb once held an amazing collection of human bones, many eagle talons, and artifacts, and is estimated to be about 3000 years old, although some of the artifacts in the tomb are dated to 5000 years old...
The Sea Eagle in many cultures is a totem that is closely related to males, the essence of water and hunting. Also, many thousands of years ago ancient ancestors may have gone through sky burials and picked clean by sea eagles, making a human spirit connection to the sea eagle.
Also in the tomb were around 100 ancient human sculls Clearly making this monument a significant tomb. In the visitor's center, we got to hold some of the ancient artifacts’ and get a real sense of how it may have been during the Neolithic time on Orkney.
Visiting the tomb and looking over the cliff to sea instantly inspired me to start his painting first. As the mythology and symbolism linked to the Eagle are vast and a good place to start creating modern myths within my imagery.
This painting has been created in many lays of gauche paint and has Orkney symbolism on each layer. Representing the passage of time that seems significant today, as Sea Eagles are said to be reintroduced to Orkney very soon...

Another gorgeous design from Peter. Came through really quick but Peter still sent an extra mug as he was away when the order came through :)

These cards are outstanding. I am impressed with the size. Even though it says clearly in the description I hadn't realised how big they'd be. It goes without saying I love EvolutionbyDesignArt's designs and I will definitely buy more. I am delighted with the cards and satisfied with despatch and delivery.
