In the words of Victorian author Amelia Murray MacGregor:
Farquhar MacDonald and Lachlan MacDonald. Signed and dated 1869Farquhar MacDonald wears a kilt and plaid of the tartan of MacDonald of the Isles and Sleat. He carries an eighteenth century sword and has his targe slung on his back. Lachlan MacDonald wears the MacDonald tartan and has a fine pair of flint-lock all-steel pistols. Shown in the background is a view of the Cuillin (Cuchillin) range on Skye, looking west from Elgol. In George and Peter Anderson's Guide to the Highlands and Islands of Scotland (1842 and 1847 editions) it is stated that the dress of the Islemen 'differed from that of the mainland Highlanders. The kilt, which, no doubt, is now falling into general disuse, is not to be met with in Skye, and it seems never to have been worn there. At present, the ordinary fashion of short coats and trousers of coarse cloth universally prevails.'
DEZINE DESIGN is an online space created especially for artists & photographers working in far-flung places, who have neither the resources (due to the remoteness of their locations) nor the opportunity to market their own work. Due to our interesting cross-section of participating artists, in our galleries you will find an unusual and eclectic variety of artwork & photography.
In addition, you will see galleries here which form part of our 'Shops with a Mission' program, whereby DEZINE DESIGN donates a significant proportion of sales revenue to good causes (charities & non-profit organizations) around the world. For example, please take a look at the MacLeay Prints Gallery, which forms part of our Tartan Zone: 33% of all DEZINE DESIGN's revenue from sales in The Tartan Zone is donated to The Scottish Tartans Authority.
After browsing through our images here, please feel free to visit DEZINE DESIGN, or take a look at our Wild Web Stores where you can enjoy a wider range of our products.
PAPER & FRAMING TIPS: All the paper choices on offer here at ImageKind are excellent papers, with different textures to suit different looks. Personally, we love the 'Somerset Velvet' paper, but the 'Enhanced Matte Paper' (Epson) is also a very good option, and is less expensive. We have suggested frames for all of our images, but of course it is up to you to choose which frame (with or without mats) you prefer! We hope you enjoy browsing through our images.
