'Hrossey' Giclee Print

'Hrossey' Giclee Print


‘Hrossey’ (in Old Norse) was a name given by the Vikings to the Orkney Island we know today as “The Mainland” and it simply means ‘Horse Island’.


This artwork pays tribute to the islands and the coming of winter depicted in the raw waves and swells that crash into the cliffs frequently during this time of year. As the summer retreats the shelter of ‘Hamnavoe’ and other sheltered bays become even more important to many ships and sailors alike; all seeking safety away from the wrath of the angry ocean. Mystical Sea creatures from Orkney folklore feature heavily in this work. Within the text you will find ‘Selkies’, ‘Finfolk’, ‘Sea Trows’ and the Stoor Worm’.
