Artist's description:

From the first day of August 1747, no man or boy within that part of Britain they call Scotland shall wear or put on the clothes commonly called Highland clothes. Every such person so offending shall be liable to be transported to any of His Majesty's plantations beyond the seas, there to remain for the space of seven years. For 36yrs it was illegal to weave or wear tartan. This only sought to further enhance the mysticism and romance of the cloth. This work depicts how the suppression of the tartan fails to crush its vibrant colours.
