This contemporary design & sculpture, was inspired by Celtic and Pictish carved rock art. It depicts an accurate topographical model of the Island of Tiree
Tiree (Scottish Gaelic: Tiriodh) is the most westerly island in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. The low-lying island has a population of around 650. The land is highly fertile, and crofting, alongside tourism, and fishing are the main sources of employment. The highest point is Ben Hynish at 463 ft.
Its name derives from Tìr Iodh, 'land of the corn', from the days of the 6th century St Columba. Tiree provided the monastic community on the island of Iona, south-east of the island, with grain. Recent archaeological research shows that there have been settlers in Tiree since about 7,500 years ago. 8th century Vikings from southern Norway raided and began to settle and farm Tiree. The native population survived alongside the new settlers. The centuries from 1000 to 1500 were a time of turbulence in the Hebrides, with disputes between the Kings of Norway, local clans, the Lordship of the Isles and eventually the Scottish Crown. The population rose to about 4,500 in the 1830s, due to more efficient agriculture, the introduction of the potato, and the kelp industry.
This piece comes ready with a hanging hole on the rear to enable it to be hung flush to the wall from a pin-nail.
