View of the Rocks from the caves at the Giants Causeway, Ireland
Artist: Bulman, J.
Watercolour depicting the rocks of the Giants Causeway, in County Antrim, Ireland. The Causeway was actually created by volcanic eruptions and cooling lave, over 60 million years ago. The early inhabitants of Antrim however believed it was the work of two rival giants named Finn McCool and Benandonner. The causeway was built by Finn so that they could take part in a battle of strength, thus the rock formation is known as the ‘Giant’s Causeway’.
