Calanais Stones on Isle of Lewis, Print
Part of our Let's Celebrate Scotland Collection, a series of prints celebrating the Scottish landscapes. Our work is initially made from layering individual pieces of hand-cut paper, before being carefully photographed and printed onto high quality paper.
Located in the west coast of Lewis, in the Outer Hebrides, the Callanish Stones have survived over 5,000 years. There is a lot of mystery surrounding the creation of this famous stone circle. But with its uninterrupted 360-degree view of the surrounding horizon, the stones were most likely erected as an astronomical observatory. The Callanish Stones provide are the perfect viewpoint to observe the rise and fall of the moon and stars.
With such a mystical link to the night sky, we have depicted the stones silhouetted against the naturally enchanted, Aurora Borealis. Named after the Roman goddess of dawn (Aurora) and the Greek name for the northern wind (Boreas), the magical spectacle is cause by charged particles from the magnetic field lines being accelerated into the Earth’s upper atmosphere.
