‘Bronze, Bone and Silence’
Reclaimed slate hearth stone, Cornish beach stones, wood. 37.2 x 23.1 x 17.0 cm.
Insertion of a short cist burial in a stone setting. The skeleton is a reflection upon burials such as those found at Newhaven in Edinburgh and Cladh Hallan in South Uist. The stones around are carved with cup and ring markings based on prominent constellations seen in the skies above Scotland during the four seasons (Orion in Winter, Leo in Spring, Cygnus in Summer and Perseus in Autumn). The style of cup and ring markings reflects those found at Ballymeanoch Stone Row and Nether Largie Standing Stones in Kilmartin Glen. Dimensions of the wooden base correspond to the Golden Ratio/Phi.
This was included in the ‘Shambhala at Shambellie’ exhibition at Shambellie House, New Abbey nr Dumfries (17th to 29th August 2017).
