Petroglyphs Painting | Original Painting on Canvas
This painting by Paula Cruz Art depicts the familiar cup and ring marks found globally amongst Neolithic and Bronze Age art.
For this specific piece, Paula utilized texture within her paint as well as dimension of colour to give a realistic representation of these symbols. While many are discovered carved into stone, some of these designs have also been preserved in gold and bronze metalwork from the same time periods.
Paula is an avid researcher for her art and has visited many historic sites where these motifs can be found. She compiled several of her favourite images to create this composition, including the ships so commonly found in heritage sites like Tanum in Sweden and the sunwheel from Madsebakke on Borneholm.
