Rituals beneath the Callanish [Oil on Canvas 16×20 Inch] © Omay Lee 2019

It is thought that the ancient Callanish stones on the Isle of Lewis was once the place for collective ritual and ceremony under dark moonlight, of asking for solutions. Rituals and sacred ceremonies are places where cultural transformation might occur. In ancient practices, ritual was used to create and maintain religious, cultural and social structures. The idea of the liminal experience is central in the undertaking of ritual. This painting was inspired by the red-robed rebels of extinction rebellion.
