Sol Skib Art Print

  • £25.00
Size
Design

Sol Skib, or solar ship in English, is a drawing made in dot work by Colin Dale of Skin & Bone Tattoo. Within the image, he has used a mixture of black dots and solid reds to create a contract between the ship and the sun in the background. He has also chosen to include the sun wheel which is a symbol that appears carved in stone across Scandinavia from the Bronze Age well into the Viking age. Its true original meaning is lost to us like so many other things, but it has since been associated with the sun.  

     

Material & Make

The artwork you will receive has been printed locally using high quality inks and paper to maintain integrity and quality of colour and image.

Your print will arrive on 250gsm uncoated art paper and should be handled with care. It’s preferable to only touch the edges and we recommend mounting these in a frame behind glass.

  

About The Artist

Colin Dale of Skin & Bone is one of the legends of modern Nordic tattooing. He first began as an apprentice in 1991 at Kunsten pa Kroppen (now run by Kai Uwe Faust). After several years of learning the basic skills of hand and machine tattooing Colin began travelling again to destinations as far away as French Polynesia... exchanging and discussing techniques with tattoo masters from Borneo, Samoa and Tahiti. Colin's research has helped to reintroduce the lost tattooing techniques of the Nordic, Native American and Inuit cultures. His work has been illustrated in various books, magazines and documentary programs. It is an honour to have him on board and we are excited to share some of his art with you here!
