The Rollright stones is a Neolithic stone circle on the border of Warwickshire and Oxfordshire.
It was built more than 3,500 years ago, but its purpose has been lost in the mists of time. It may have been used as a meeting place, a trading post, a temple, a livestock enclosure, your guess is as good as mine! Whatever its original purpose, the very fact that more than three millennia later it still stands, a beautiful sculptural form in a glorious rolling landscape is remarkable.
It is of great significance to me personally.
This painting takes in every one of the 77 remaining megaliths that make up the stone circle. The painting is made on two canvas boards, mounted and framed together.
