Newgrange Kerbstone K52

Kerbstone 52 is a superb example of artistic achievement. As is the case with kerbstone 1 a centrally-placed vertical line divides the art into two main panels. That on the left is further subdivided into two panels. The motifs on the top are curvilinear (spirals) but on the bottom panel the art is angular (lozenges). On the principal right-hand panel the art is more integrated and mainly consists of a series of oval-shaped motifs and arcs that consist of multiple members. George Eogan
