An Original Linocut Print of the Alaisiagae,  ancient Goddesses worshipped at Hadrians Wall.

 Hand printed by myself at my home studio in the Northeast of England, so everyone is slightly different and unique.

The Alaisiagae were Celtic/Germanic war goddesses similar to the Valkyries of the Norse. They were worshipped in the North of England with votives found at Housesteads on Hadrians Wall. This design is my own based on my research of them as very little is known of the Alaisiagae. Sometimes believed to be a pair, sometimes a quartet and often paired with Frisian Goddesses of similar names. They are unlikely to be Roman in origin but were worshipped by the Romans on the wall as Goddesses of Victory.

Disclaimer: This design is not exactly rectangular. It was hand drawn and no matter which way I print it, it always looks slightly not straight. I like it this way but it's perhaps not for everyone!

The process of a linocut print is quite lengthy. I digitally design most of my prints, these are then printed and transferred to a block for carving. Once carved the block is inked and printed to produce the final piece. In a reduction method, the block is carved and inked numerous times to achieve the different colours. This means that this limited edition of prints can never be made again. This edition is of 20 prints. Each print is numbered  and signed for authenticity and comes with a descriptive note about the mythology of the design.

This linocut print is handprinted in beautiful white strathmore printmaking paper, with Caligo safewash ink.

This print is mounted in a A4 archival grade  mount for ease of framing. If you require a different mounting size please get in touch as I mount all my own work and may be able to accommodate you. 

Your print will be carefully wrapped to ensure safe delivery. I am also to make the move to using post-consumer packaging to be more ecofriendly.

All UK orders are being posted by the Royal Mail, for orders over £10 this will be by 48hr tracked delivery unless Express delivery options are added. For orders under £10 I use 2nd class post. International Delivery is via Royal Mail International Standard tracked Delivery. 

The Print is approximately 15cmx20cm and the paper size is approximately 28cm x 35cm and comes with a descriptive note about the design.
