Art and music bring Maeshowe out of darkness

Media Releases

One of Orkney’s most ancient and awe-inspiring heritage attractions, and one of the finest Neolithic sites in Europe, Maeshowe Chambered Cairn was the inspiration for a unique artistic project and Winter Festival which is being staged at the site later this month. Out of Darkness is the result of a collaboration by Marianne Pollich, Psychological Psychotherapist, and Elisabeth Holder, Professor for Applied Arts - both of whom are from Düsseldorf, Germany - and the culmination of five years’ research and planning by the pair. Their highly original joint project is a two-part artistic presentation of art and music, based on the findings of studies they have carried out at Maeshowe and other Orkney tombs since 2004.
