This original linocut print is based upon the astonishing craftsmanship revealed in the excavations from the Oseberg ship in Norway. The Vikings, in popular mythology associated with brutality and war, also possessed a rich artistic culture and this is perhaps best shown in the woodwork which emerged from the excavations of 1904-5. The print, which also features a subtle underlay of runic text, is the perfect accompaniment to my print of the same post finished in green.
One of variable edition of 5, hand printed on a Victorian Albion Press in Cambridgeshire, UK. Signed and editioned by the artist and printed on 250 gsm Somerset Velvet Paper. The printed part of the image measures approximately 6 x 6 inches (15 x 15cm).
