Dolmen of the North

{image_alt} 25cm by 25cm oil on linen

Dolmens are ancient burial grounds marked by three huge stones they are found spread throughout the nordic countries. Dolmens were famously painted in many romantic era paintings and serve as a metaphore to lost civilasations of the north. 

This painting is perhaps the first piece in which the artist choose to embark on an artisic journey to create a new form of painting which reveres and celebrates the cultures, myths and spiritual history of the northern European peoples.
