Irelands Ancient East

 

Artwork inspired by megalithic sites

Dorothy Bentley - Jewellery Artist. Her designs are inspired by her upbringing in the celtic tradition and by megalithic symbols, especially the spiral symbols at Newgrange.  Dorothy features interlace knotwork and spirals (infinity symbols) in her jewellery, because these designs incorporate an ancient tradition with a uniquely modern style. Every piece is handcrafted and unique.  More ... Dorothy Bentley - Jewellery Artist


Newgrange Interior Artwork by Sally McKenna.

Sally McKenny's art is inspired by the passage tombs at Newgrange, Fourknocks and Loughcrew in Ireland's Ancient East. Her search for sacred space through the discovery of the ancient and holy sites of Ireland takes the form of a journey from the bright sunshine of the American South West to the enveloping mists of Ireland’s ancient holy places.

This high quality silkscreen print is very collectible, limited edition prints are for sale at 200 Euro each. This is a labour of love for Padraig who is only interested in covering his costs.

Loughcrew - Cairn T Backstone Artwork by Helen Gavigan

Helen Gavigan works in watercolours, acrylics, oils, print and mixed media. She often takes a stone symbol or pattern as a starting point and allows her work develop from there. Helen is originally from Co. Meath where the cairns at Loughcrew and the passage tombs of the Boyne Valley have inspired her work.

Newgrange by Richard Moore Artwork by Richard Moore

Richard Moore has been painting in the Boyne Valley for 20 years. He works mainly with oil, and sometimes with watercolour and ink. Richard's keen eye, coupled with his great appreciation of the natural, and manmade, environments, combine to give us a unique portrait of the ancient sites of the Boyne Valley.


Paintings by Judith Quain - While on a tour of Ireland’s megalithic tombs Judith Quain discovered the beauty of an ancient art of carving symbols into stone. For centuries, myths and legends have celebrated their power, but she was intrigued by the revelation that these ancient cairns, standing stones, and stone circles may be the oldest astronomical observatories in the world, predating Stonehenge and the Egyptian Pyramids.
