Lot Details
Preseli Bluestone Skull Carving
Preseli Hills, Pembrokeshire, England
From the same source of British bluestone from which the inner stone circle of Stonehenge was produced, the stone of this unique skull carving imparts an almost mystical presence. The unusual spotted dolerite originates from the Preseli Hills, the only locality in Britain in which bluestone is found. It is believed that the huge Stonehenge bluestones were dragged all the way from Wales to Wiltshire because of the healing and sacred powers that the Druids attached to them.
