This work was created on site en plein air with special entry permission granted by National Historic Scotland into Skara Brae’s House #7. The view encompasses stone furniture within House #7, including the fire pit, chair, dresser, cupboard, and water tank. Skara Brae is a part of the UNESCO Heart of Neolithic Orkney site; the group of monuments consists of a large chambered tomb (Maeshowe), two ceremonial stone circles (the Stones of Stenness and the Ring of Brodgar) and a village settlement (Skara Brae), together with a number of other unexcavated burial, ceremonial, and settlement sites. The Heart of Neolithic Orkney is unquestionably among the most important Neolithic sites in Western Europe. They provide exceptional evidence of the material and spiritual standards as well as the beliefs and social structures of this dynamic period of prehistory.
