Saint Kilda, Ltd Edition Print

  My latest Sacred Circle, “St Kilda” is inspired by a species of dandelion that was recently discovered on the Isle of Hirta, in the St Kilda archipelago by Jim McIntosh, a recorder of flora for the Outer Hebrides, during survey work. St Kilda lies 41 miles west of the Western Isles of Scotland. The island was abandoned by the last St Kildans in 1930 after years of slow depopulation when there were only 36 human inhabitants. Permanent habitation on the islands extends back two millennia and St Kilda is one of Scotland’s six World Heritage sites. It’s one of the few sites in the world to hold joint status for its natural and cultural qualities. There are thousands of stone structures and even two early sheep types that live on these remote islands. The Soay are sheep with linage from the Neolithic age and the Boreray are of Iron age linage. My St Kilda is an original digital archival print (edition of 12). Frame size 16” x 13”. If you are interested in this print, DM me about St Kilda
