Petrified Garden by Mark Johnston (1996)


These are images from Mark Johnston exhibition ‘Petrified Garden’, presented in the old An Lanntair venue in Stornoway Town Hall in 1996.

Petrified Garden takes as its theme the numerous prehistoric stone circles, avenues, tombs and alignments which are found in Scotland and throughout Northern Europe. These first attempts to establish reference points on the earth are the ossified evidence of what was once an established culture, and the earliest known forms of religious art in the landscape.

There are several ways to interact with the exhibition – you can pan around the gallery using your mouse, the arrow keys on your keyboard, or the controller arrows on the screen. And you can zoom in or out using the scroll wheel on your mouse, or the on-screen controllers.

To view any of the images larger just click on the one that you wish to see; and for more information click on the information icons.

For best results click on the ‘enter full screen’ icon – the one on the far right.
