The Giant and the Witch


25 print limited edition

A long time ago an Icelandic chief wanted the Faroe Islands to be part of Iceland, and his dominion, so one night he sent the Giant and his wife to steal them. Their plan was to hitch a rope to the islands and drag them back towards Iceland. Being creatures of the night though they had to complete their task in a single night before the sun came up. ⁣
⁣They managed to get the rope in place, but as they started to pull, part of the islands came away. They struggled to get the rope secured to a better place but as they got lost in the task at hand they forgot to keep an eye on the sunrise. Before they knew it, dawn was upon them, they turned towards Iceland to hurry home but too late. The first rays of morning sun hit them and turned them to stone.
They stand there to this day, staring westwards towards the home they would never be able to return to.⁣

Printing and Limited Editions explained

Early Bird


All my prints are available both as signed, fine art prints and unsigned photographic prints.
Signed fine art prints are limited edition meaning that only a certain number will ever be printed, normally 25, though it varies. They are printed on fine art, Hahnemühle Photo Rag paper using Giclée printing, and each one is individually signed, numbered and checked by me. You know that only a certain number of these will ever be printed. You can see an example of how they look above.
Unsigned photographic prints are processed directly by The Printers using C-type photographic printing. They are printed with a white border around the edge containing my logo, below this is the name of the image and a short description. An example can be seen on the right.
