The title of this painting is a quote from the Bible (Genesis 6:4) that clearly states that giants existed... there are legends and folk stories in Britain of Giants, and of the stone monuments that litter the islands either being constructed by Giants or actually being petrified Giants; all over the world from Cornwall to America to the Middle East and pretty much everywhere else, there are legends of Giants, even in recent times (-reputedly reported by US servicemen in the Solomon Islands during World War Two and even in Afghanistan recently). There have been reports in newspapers for hundreds of years detailing the discoveries of giant skeletons, and there are rumours of cover-ups by museums and archaeological organisations concerning these discoveries (see Jim Vieira, Hugh Newman, Ross Hamilton's book "Giants on Record: America's Hidden History..." if this interests you). I find it fascinating that this theme is so prevalent all across the globe. There is a detail in the painting of the constellation Orion, as these monuments are often significantly aligned with it; it may not be coincidence that the constellation depicts a huge Giant in the sky... This painting has metallic and iridescent qualities and, as such, changes in differing light -it is very difficult to photograph accurately.
