Artwork description:

Silbury Hill, Avebury, Wiltshire, England

The mist descends on Silbury hill at dusk, close to midwinter day.

The largest man-made mound in Europe, mysterious Silbury Hill compares in height and volume to the roughly contemporary Egyptian pyramids. Probably completed in around 2400 BC, it apparently contains no burial. Though clearly important in itself, its purpose and significance remain unknown.

Silbury Hill is part of the Avebury World Heritage Site, and a Site of Special Scientific Interest.



Printed on Hahnemühle Photo Rag Baryta paper with a weight of 315gsm.
