High quality acid free fine art smooth paper of 300gsm, is coated with a unique new ink jet receiving layer that gives a semi-gloss finish to the printed image. The coating is undetectable on the paper until the ink is applied, then it bursts forward with a subtle yet vibrant sheen. The surface coating gives a high depth of colour and is tough and highly resistant to scratches. We have chosen some of our favourite formations from recent years as choices for the prints.
Hackpen Hill 2013: The Hackpen Hill formation of 15th July 2013 was quickly named ‘The Dream-Catcher’ because of its similarity to the familiar Native American charm that was traditionally given to infants to ward away nightmares. This dream-catcher has a lovely eight-fold geometry. Eight is the number of ‘periodical renewal’ or the number of ‘resonance’ it sounds the octave after the 7 notes of the musical scale. The symbolism of the dream-catcher conjures thoughts of the consciousness connection between the crop circles and those that interact with them. This formation also carries the classic quintuplet in its design. This formation had hundreds of visitors during the season and was a firm favourite of ours!
This image shows the crop circle in its attending landscape captures the atmosphere, mood and power of the formation while it remained in the field.
