AEI01 - An ancient image from Newgrange Mound,  

Ireland, sandcarved on glossy black stone and color

filled with gold colored paint. 


Newgrange  is a prehistoric monument in County

Meath, Ireland, located 8 kilometres (5.0 mi) west of

Drogheda on the north side of the River Boyne.  

It was built during the Neolithic period, around

3200 BC, making it older than Stonehenge and

the Egyptian pyramids. The site consists of a large

circular mound with an inner stone passageway

and chambers. Humanbones and possible grave

goods or votive offerings were found in these

chambers. The mound has a retaining wall at the

front, made mostly of white quartz cobblestones,

and is ringed by engraved kerbstones. Many of the 

larger stones of Newgrange are covered in megalithic

art. The mound is also ringed by a stone circle.

The image on this item (AEI01) is from the left side of

the kerbstone at the entrance passage to Newgrange.
