WHO ARE WE?

WHERE DO WE COME FROM?

WHAT IS IT THAT MAKES US HUMAN?

“When it was first described in detail a century and a half ago, the Ring of Brodgar was very little understood... Today, as a result of subsequent research, we know a great deal more.  But as a monument, its presence somehow still transcends our knowledge or understanding.  There is more to say, although we do not yet know how to say it.”

“An artist is someone who is capable of unveiling the invisible.
