Artist's description:

The soil around this burial chamber was the same colour as the chamber itself. It emerges from the surrounding landscape, looking for all the world like a portal to another universe. It is a fantastic location, perched atop a cliff, looking down on wave after wave of rushing white water.

As I looked down on it from a slightly raised vantage point I could see why the ancients had built it there. It juts out into the surf and flattens the landscape around itself. The waves a hundred feet below make a stunning backdrop and in an age when tribes lived amongst nature it must have been a way they could lay their loved ones to rest in a place that was sacred because of it's natural beauty.

Materials used:

Home made walnut ink, carbon and conte crayon onto Fabriano paper. Fabriano is an Italian paper mill dating from the Renaissance; many of the great masters would have used their paper.
