Turning a petrosphere…

Long-time supporters of the Ness  Michael and Sara Sinclair have posted a video showing the creation of one of their wooden petropsheres.

The auction of one of Michael’s stunning brass petrospheres raised £625 for excavation funds earlier this year.

Much of Michael’s inspiration is derived from Orkney’s rich archaeological heritage, with this beautiful piece specifically inspired by Neolithic petrospheres or carved stone balls, found in Orkney and the north of Scotland, including the Ness of Brodgar.
