This original linocut print is based upon the astonishing craftsmanship revealed in the excavations from the Oseberg ship in Norway in the early 20th Century. This particular image draws from one of a series of carved wooden posts, this post showing the head of a beast - possibly that of a dragon or a lion.
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).
