Ancient circle remains

Christopher Paul Gill

“This work was made from rubbings of a mysterious stone bowl carved in the rock of the Bridestones, a mysterious series of large stones on the hills above Todmorden. Probably dating from Neolithic times, it is a site dedicated to Bride, goddess of the Brigantian people. The site is a 5 mile walk to and from my house. I made rubbings, transderred to wood and then used oil paint to make a third replica of the stone bowl. What the bowl was used for is a mystery, but it had a very strong powerful feeling. The stone circle is an ancient religious motif, related to sacred geometry, practised by druids.”
