Pockets of prehistoric Ireland abound but this Newgrange passage tomb greeting card 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 the image on this Newgrange passage tomb greeting card? 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?

What People Are Saying
I'm a Hill and when I saw this I just had to buy it. I have so many fond memories of spending summer weeks down in Montezuma at Nanny and Paw's store. I was so sad when the flood filled the store with water but it was a testament to the community when so many banded together to help out afterwards. Just know I bought this print to frame and take to Nanny so she can enjoy it as well. Thank you so much for making this ❤️

She Loves It!
My girlfriend just received the print, and she loves it! We both love the vibrant colors, and Forsyth Park, Savannah in general, and Tybee Island are special to us because she lives in NC and I live in FL, so every once in a while we’ll meet in the middle and explore together.
Thank you so much!
