The first substantial traces of independent Irish life are to be found in the valley of the river Boyne. The great passage graves of Newgrange with their numerous tombs were built around 3200 BC. They are the burial chambers of their tribal kings, kings of a simple agricultural society which already carried the unmistakable imprint of a civilization.
Their artwork and decorated spiral carvings were executed without the help of any iron tools. You could call them the earliest signatures of an Irish identity. Eamonn has been fascinated by the artwork and ability of the early settlers in Newgrange, Ireland. Eamonn’s Newgrange collection is his interpretation of their creativity.
Eamonn Vereker’s work in the Newgrange style is for exhibition purposes, but interested people are welcome to request a commissioned piece from this collection. Please contact Eamonn at his Norwood studio in South Australia to discuss your needs.
