Ships to:. What the art means has been long debated. Some believe that they represent the artwork produced during states of altered consciousness, perhaps through shamanic ritual or consumption of mind-altering mushrooms or herbs. Perhaps they were abstract representations of astronomical features, or perhaps simply abstract art though as the symbols appear regularly at a number of passage tomb sites from this period surely the symbols had real meaning.
Perhaps the famous spirals and circles of megalithic art represent tree rings, a visible marker of the passing of time for these Neolithic farmers. The confirmation of megalithic art gives further evidence that the site is a Neolithic passage tomb, as this type of megalithic art is particularly associated with this type of monument.
The Hellfire Club, an 18th-Century Ritual Cult for the Famous and Powerful
This exciting discovery helps to reinforce the importance of the tomb behind the Hellfire Club, and it gives a tantalising glimpse of what the original tomb may have looked like before its destruction in the 18th and 19th centuries. The stone and its art is now with the National Museum of Ireland, where it will be further examined and studied by experts and specialists to see if it will reveal any more secrets.
You can enjoy a great 3-D model produced by the Discovery Programme below. Also, I may be imagining things, but I can see a much smaller circle just above the double circle on the right-hand side!
Hi John, great suggestions! For the smaller circle that might well be there!
Thanks a million for your comment! Keith, yes, or both the images and the tomb layout deliberately reflecting the same symbolic meaning? Hi Keith, intriguing suggestion. One of the theories about the meanings of megalithic art is that they may represent maps. Certainly something to consider! It would be interesting to do a paper cast of the stone and see if there are any traces of other engravings that are hard to spot with the naked eye.
It almost looks like the hint of chevron or lozenge shapes above the concentric circles. Hi Carol, great suggestion. Thinking about it, the inscribed stone at Tibradden does look rather fresh for neolithic art. In , Dashwood's nephew Joseph Alderson an undergraduate at Brasenose College, Oxford founded the Phoenix Society later known as the Phoenix Common Room , but it was only in that the small gathering of friends asserted themselves as a recognised institution. To this day, the dining society abides by many of its predecessor's tenets. Its motto uno avulso non deficit alter when one is torn away another succeeds is from the sixth book of Virgil's Aeneid and refers to the practice of establishing the continuity of the society through a process of constant renewal of its graduate and undergraduate members.
The Phoenix Common Room's continuous history was reported in as a matter of note to the college.
Dublin's 'haunted' Hellfire Club site was a Neolithic passage tomb
A number of Hellfire Clubs are still in existence in Ireland and are centred around universities and meet secretly. For example, there is a Hellfire Club at Trinity College that meets in central Dublin, while there is also a Hellfire Club at Maynooth University that meets in Maynooth, as well as one that regularly meets in Cork. These clubs carry out similar actions as the original Hellfire Clubs, including mock ceremonies and drinking alcohol.
