Newgrange Panorama - Megalithic Ireland Canvas Print
This Megalithic Ireland canvas print features a Newgrange Panorama. Newgrange is an ancient astronomically aligned passage tomb. And when I say ancient, it predates the Egyptian pyramids. In Irish, the Newgrange site is known as Sí an Bhrú.
Although my visit was a bit late for the winter solstice, I did visit on a winter day in late January and one gets a sense of the alignment with the sun even then as you can see in this sweeping panoramic view of the archaeological site. The dark interior of the tomb is lit by the sun on day of the winter solstice. What exactly the significance was to the prehistoric people who built it is lost with them but one could certainly imagine some sort of rebirth of the ancestors buried within.
The Newgrange monument is part of a larger site in County Meath near to the River Boyne. The Brú na Bóinne complex includes other passage tombs, standing stones, mounds, and more. It's listed UNESCO World Heritage site - that almost goes without saying doesn't it!
Have you explored Newgrange as seen in this panorama canvas print? Or is it still a dream and you love ancient prehistory? I certainly hope you'll share your thoughts on this Newgrange panorama and what about it caught your eye.

Canvas Prints - Product Information
Stretched canvas prints are a great choice for decorating your home or office. Canvas art is a classic choice that is at home in traditional and modern decor alike.
After the purchase of your canvas print, it is made to your order. The artwork is printed on an acid-free poly/cotton blend canvas. The use of archival inks and substrate means that your canvas art print should last a lifetime without fading or loss of color.
When ordering your print, you have a choice between glossy and matte finishes. While I ordinarily love matte finishes on prints, I do like the sheen that comes on glossy canvas prints. Ultimately I would suggest letting the amount of light in your space guide your choice. In a brightly lit environment, I would lean towards a matte finish to reduce the chance of glare.
There are three wrap styles to choose from for canvas prints. The mirrored wrap choice mirrors and extends the image to the sides of the canvas wrap (without losing any of the original artwork on the front). The majority of the time I would suggest this is the best choice. The other two options are a solid black wrap or white wrap. You can see a preview of each option when selecting wrap color.
After printing, the canvas is stretched over and secured to a wooden frame of 1.5" by 1.5" stretcher bars. The entire production process takes from 10 to 15 business days. Your artwork will arrive in sturdy packaging. The hanging wire will be attached and all hardware necessary to hang your canvas print will be included. Canvas prints are a great ready-to-hang option.
