Hiberno Saxon or Insular Art
A 3 hawk design based on a decorative element from the Lindisfarne Gospels. The original birds had hound ears so I removed and redesigned them to triquetra shapes. I also changed the tail feathers to suit my own tastes in knotwork. This is my first design created for textiles only, but it is now available across Redbubble’s product range.

Date: 2012
Media: China ink and polychromos on Art Spectrum Medium tooth 210gsm
