About our Photographic Enlargements: Each 10 x 15 inch image is printed on glossy photographic paper and is supplied hand-rolled and posted in a strong cardboard tube or is flat-packed to ensure safe delivery. We have chosen a selection of our favourite crop circles from the 2019 season for you to choose from.
Old and New: People new to the crop circles (and some of those not so new) don’t realise, or sometimes forget, that this phenomenon was born in the quiet, enchanted, long-sanctified places in our landscape. They were born from (and woven into) the myth and legend of this green and pleasant land (as Blake once called it). Early circles could often be found near ancient springs, burial mounds and hushed places of power. They drew attention to these long forgotten places, amplified, intensified and re-consecrated many of them into the modern age. The history and origins of this phenomenon are sometimes overlooked (or forgotten) in favour of more modern ideas about an alien industrial complex, that’s not to say that UFOs are not part of the crop circle narrative, but they often manifest as the mercurial will-o’-the-wisp, or small ball-shaped and aptly-named ghost-lights. This formation seemed like the perfect invitation to revisit a part of the landscape where the circles were first born and began to haunt the modern world. An apt theme for the beginning of a season!
Design & Symbolism: This formation was a nice three-fold design. Three equidistant circles intersect and are locked in place by a fourth circle. The intersecting rings of the three circles create a nice tri-fold flower at the centre of the formation. Three is a sacred number, Godheads of many types are expressed as three-fold – Father, Son & Holy Ghost, Mother, Maiden & Crone. The human too, is often described as a sacred combination of Mind, Body & Spirit. Three is that which balances opposition and polarity, it is also a number which can simultaneously pierce duality – three can cut through and then reconcile. Three is therefore a sacred unity in its own right. Finally, three is a number of harmony; three notes combine harmoniously to create a musical chord. This formation spoke to me of origins (unity, circle), and the sacred healing of extremes with reconciliation and harmony (three). The fourth anchoring circle, brings this healing into the manifest world (four).
