The Burren

Vintage style art print of the Poulnabrone Dolmen on the Burren, County Clare (Connacht).

Poulnabrone dolmen (Poll na mBrón in Irish. As quern translates as bró in Irish, it may originate as “Hole of the quern-stones”) is an unusually large dolmen or portal tomb located in the Burren, County Clare, Ireland. Situated on one of the most desolate and highest points of the region, it comprises three standing portal stones supporting a horizontal capstone, and dates to the Neolithic period, probably between 4200 BC and 2900 BC. It the best known and most widely photographed of the approximately 172 dolmens in Ireland.

Its karst limestone setting was formed around 350 million years ago. It was built by neolithic farmers who choose the location either for ritual, as a territorial marker, or as a collective burial site, What remains today is only the “stone skeleton” of the original monument; originally it would have been covered with soil, and its flagstone capped by a cairn.

When the site was excavated in 1986 and again in 1988, around 33 human remains, including those of adults, children (and the remains of a much later bronze age infant) were found buried underneath it, along with various stone and bone objects that would have been placed with them at the time of interment. Both the human remains and the burial objects date to between 3800 BC and 3200 BC.

Specification

PRINTS
All prints produced with the highest quality long-life archive inks on 250g heavyweight paper and are supplied rolled in strong 7.5cm (3″) diameter postal tubes for reduced curl and safe transport. The pictures supplied suit standard frame sizes that are available in many furnishing and hardware stores such as Ikea.

The black outline is to show the edges of the print and to demonstrate what the print would look like in a frame. The finished prints do NOT have the jskelly.co.uk watermarks shown in the previews on screen.

Shipping

I post pictures all over the world. So, if you have a loved one in far off places, enter their delivery address at checkout and I’ll happily ship to them directly.

Prints are shipped rolled-up in strong, wide postal tubes, ready for framing.

I can only ship framed prints to the UK and Ireland.
For safety reasons, framed prints are shipped with plastic instead of glass.

UK – Standard UK shipping usually takes around 1 – 3 days.
International – Standard (from approximately $10) or Tracked and Signed (from approximately $15) typically takes 7 to 10 days to the USA.

Standard 50x40cm pictures are kept in stock and usually dispatched within 24 hours (excluding weekends) – all other sizes are printed to order and usually take an extra 24 hours to dispatch.

*** As I live out in the country, last postal and courier collection times are quite early, therefore orders placed after 10am will likely not be shipped until the following working day.

I always do my best to ensure that orders are shipped within 1 or 2 working days.

Frames

Framed prints are supplied in black frames without a surrounding mount. Frames might vary depending what is available at the time, but I will do my best to ensure that frames in the same order will match. However, due to supply, frame styles for different sizes may vary.

For safety reasons, framed pictures will be shipped with a clear plastic face.

All my prints are in sizes to suit off-the-shelf frames as available from furnishing and hardware stores such as Ikea, B&Q, etc.
