Decorated Stone in the chamber of Fourknocks Passage Tomb, County Meath, Ireland.
Excavated by the National Museum of Ireland in the early 1950s revealled an undisturbed Neolithic passage tomb of cruciform plan and a number of decorated stones, human remains and grave offerings were also found. After excavation a metal/concrete dome was built over the site to protect it from the environment while allowing visitor access.
The modelled stone is decorated on two faces.
Inside the dome there is very low lighting levels through holes in the dome which throw limited light onto decorated surfaces, I placed a bright torch in one of these holes and photographed the stone with the camera on a tripod with exposure: 6 seconds @ f6.3, ISO 80. 73 photographs were used for this model.
