About Prehistoric Rock Art
This jewellery collection is inspired by the ancient neolithic to early Bronze age carvings still visible today on natural rock outcrops and standing stones in the open landscape. Concave depressions or hollows, sometimes with concentric rings and other grooves were laboriously pecked into the natural rock surface with stone and later bronze tools. This style of rock art, known as Cup & Ring Art is found in specific locations along the Atlantic seaboard stretching from Scandinavia to Greece.
The Isle of Doagh Rock Art collection is derived from some of the many carved outcrops on the Isle of Doagh peninsula, Inishowen, Co.Donegal. With over 40 known sites and more still being found, it is one of the most important locations of cup-and-ring-art in Ireland.
