Limited Edition Print – only 25 copies will be printed
Photographed in Pembroke, Pembrokeshire. Pembroke Castle was initially built in 1093 by Arnulf de Montgomery, and in the late 12th century, the Keep was built and was an outstanding feature and architectural novelty from then onwards. There is a massive cylindrical tower and unusual stone dome, which puts the Castle in an elevated position and had a natural advantage and superiority when it came to defence. The Keep was also built to be nearly 80ft high.
Pembroke Castle is however most famous for being the birthplace of Henry VII, the founder of the Tudor Dynasty, and Britain’s only Welsh King.
William Marshall, son-in-law of Strongbow, conqueror of Ireland – and pictured here on his mount – was the man responsible for the reconstruction of the Castle in stone in the late 12th/early 13th centuries. This beautiful sculpture is wonderfully life-like and it’s great that we are able to touch it and appreciate the excellent workmanship and detail.
