Small Print Series: Oseburg Beast
The original art was created on A5 paper and is available on its own or as a part of the Dyrs Hjarta Small Print Series (Buy all 4 for £25)
The artwork has taken inspiration from a beast head from the top of viking tent frame found with the Oseburg ship. The knotwork was inspired by pattern that was often used to depict the waves of sea in Nordic art.
The Landscape Dyrs Hjarta has created is something timeless, unchanging and ancient. She used negative space and kept the ship in white to contrast between the permanence of the natural landscape and the brief impact humans have in time.
