Penbury Knoll





As promised, the first trial in my ‘Ritual Landscape’ series; the focal point for Neolithic burials that is Penbury Knoll in Dorset. The tapestry is 5cm square and includes Ghiordes Knots for the trees, soumak for the paths, verdigris copper wire for contour lines, and beads to mark the high point (hidden in the trees) and a spring.  Next up, Gussage Down.
I am building up a textural vocabulary to make pocket maps of sacred places - the ‘thin places’ of the Celts.
