I wasn't 100% pleased with how this one turned out but time ran out between client work. Onwards and upwards! :D
The theme around the piece is very much based on the border between the land of the living and the land of the dead in British and Irish prehistorical landscapes. Places like stone henge are often dedicated to ancestors and have entire areas which were almost segregated as the land of the dead. Stone, in general, was associated with ancestry whereas wood was dedicated to life with a special relationship surrounding water in the centre of it all. If there ever was "border guardians" we may never know, but It was fun to think about as I worked through this piece.
