Neo-Lithic Cave Art

This original watercolor, inspired by neolithic cave art, should appeal to Neanderthals and other cavemen, cavers, archaeologists, Celts, pagans, and others.  Thirteen spirals (four triple and one single) with one Trinity Knot are superimposed on a background reminiscent of a cave wall; both the Triple Spiral and Trinity Knot are forms of the triskele/ triskelion.

The background is an intricate layering of colors and techniques, including plastic wrap and salt. The spirals and trinity knot were made with stencils; yellow, green, and red paints were then laid over the stencils.
