Exhibition: Spirits of the Stones
A touring exhibition by Annabel Carey of batiks featuring stone circles in England, Scotland and Wales, which began at the Marischal Museum, Aberdeen in November 2003 reaches the Royal Cornwall Museum, Truro (England) for an exhibition running until May 13.
The work shown here is the result of a 20-year project, Spirit of the Stones. This has resulted in more than 50 batiks celebrating prehistoric stone circles and tombs of the British Isles, many of which are here in Cornwall. Annabel said of her work: "I used the medium of batik as it seemed to offer me a wide range of expression to capture the essence of each monument. By exhibiting batiks from all regions together I hope to inspire and encourage other people to visit these monuments, some more than 5000 years old, and reflect on our ancient spiritual heritage."
Admission to the exhibition is free.
