A curious hand-finished replica of the Ness of Brodgar carved stone ball.

This replica forms part of a range accompanying the British Museum exhibition The world of Stonehenge.

This plaster ornament has been crafted and hand-painted in the UK using a mould of the original.

Archaeological sites in Scotland have revealed several hundred Neolithic carved stone balls, although only one was found at the Ness of Brodgar. The purpose of the balls is unknown, as they do not seem to have been used as tools, but the finish is quite beautiful suggesting they must have been culturally significant.

A unique home ornament inspired by ancient history.
