“(distant )Miners “.

by timpughartist


“(distant ) Miners”, was sketched out on a bare rock next to a derelict iron ore mine in West Cumbria. I cut out an image of a group of Victorian miners and used it as a template on the  rock to draw around text based on historical  information about Birks Mine.I wanted to create an faded image that suggested a memory of the mining activity in homage to the workers.
The drawing was made on a rock frequented by owls and crows that had feathers  from various kills
scattered around the base.
