Prehistoric Ireland - Newgrange Passage Tomb Canvas Print by Mark Tisdale.

Pockets of prehistoric Ireland abound but this Newgrange passage tomb canvas print features what may well be the granddaddy of amazing prehistoric sites. Newgrange is an astronomically aligned passage tomb. Originally timed with the winter solstice, a beam of light illuminates the inner reaches of the decorated mound once a year. Even getting to go inside and witness the simulated light of that day was a highlight of my travels.

Newgrange was already centuries old when the Egyptian pyramids were built. When Stonehenge was built, Newgrange had stood for a thousand years. As it was built before written record, we can only guess at the intentions and the culture of the builders. But it's fascinating to try to peek into the minds of long ago. Imagine this view of the Newgrange passage tomb on a similar winter day 5,000 years ago. Mind boggling isn't it?

What catches your eye in this Newgrange passage tomb canvas print? Does it remind you of a visit to this prehistoric site or do you simply love a captivating Irish landscape complete with prehistoric stone monuments?

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.

Canvas Print Detail Sample

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.
