progress with paint and asking the obvious questions

image

Monolithic, powerful, virile?
How were the standing stones viewed 5k years ago?
What was their symbolism?

I am intrigued by how the walls were built and if and how the stones were cut
I am fascinated by the field patterns of miles of parrallel walls still repeated today
Fanning out inwards from the coastal cliffs of Mayo

I am bowled over by the intricate plans and scale drawings, in red, made by the archeologists of Ceide Fields
More questions than answers, my personal response has to be with paint

More paint layers this morning, powder pigment, solvent, scraping, rolling;
not done yet though
