The Fire Eye Stone from Cairn I, Loughcrew.

On with the paintings. I think we hung and painted 10 of them within our chamber. How we got time to do them, I don't know. Sketches. People working for the festival thought we were a bit mad - we did ourselves until it came together. Thie stone above is from Cairn L at Loughcrew. It is illuminated by the light of the rising sun at Samhain and Imbolc, the festivals at the beginning and end of winter. We used this symbol in out earlier large scale project, Solas Atlantis.

This design is reproduced from Fourknocks, a site near Naul, not far north of Dublin Airport. You can see a bit of the passage roof as well.
