The Nine Standards are a row of large stone cairns that sit prominently atop Hartley Fell, on the edge of Cumbria and the Yorkshire Dales.
Visiting on a hazy winter’s morning provided me with quite an eerie experience. Very still and with no-one else around, the Nine Stone Men seemed to have a disctinct presence and I had the strangest feeling that they were aware of my approach.
This experience is what I have chosen to capture in my print, looking up at the ancient stones from the last stretch of path.
‘Nine Standards’ is an 8 colour screenprint, hand-printed with water based inks on 300gsm, acid free, Canaletto Velino art grade paper.
Each print comes with a map & signed certificate of authenticity.
Approx 412 x 412 mm in size, this a very limited edition of 30 and is numbered, titled, signed, and embossed at the bottom.
