Artist's Description

A view of the Iron Age ring fort, Dún Aonghasa (Dun Aengus), on the isle of Inis Mór off the west coast of Ireland. There are those that believe this (and other forts on the Aran Islands) were part of a last refuge for a people driven from mainland Ireland. However, more recent theories suggest that these were spiritual places. While I don’t have the background to make a definitive choice, it did have a feeling of a special place more than a desperate attempt at defense. Most of the forts on Inis Mór, like this one, are built on the cliff as half circles. Dún Aonghasa has a raised dias in the middle that backs up to the cliff in an altar-like pattern.
