Arthur’s Return – Glastonbury Tor Canvas Print by Mark Tisdale
This Glastonbury Tor canvas print features a depiction of Arthur’s Return on the night of a full moon. In the foreground the figure of Arthur is surrounded by mists and magical light. On the top of the Tor is St. Michael’s Tower, all that remains of a medieval church that was pulled down during Henry VIII’s dissolution of the monasteries.
Years ago I visited Glastonbury Tor on a sunny late summer day so this is largely a work of the imagination but I will never forget the feeling of walking up that hill. Glastonbury Tor is thought by some to be the mystical Avalon from the legends of King Arthur. Before farming changed the landscape, the fens that surround the tor formed a marshy lake around it. So it was an island in the past. Hmmm!
This artwork imagines the return of King Arthur to the Avalon of today. I would love to hear your thoughts on this Glastonbury Tor canvas print. Have you visited this place or do you simply enjoy the Arthurian legends? Whether you have questions or comments, I hope you’ll drop me a note.
