The Moon and the Long Man of Wilmington by Alej ez

Its origin a meaning remains unclear. Different theories say that he could be a pilgrim from the nearby Wilmington Priory. Professor John North said that this figure could be from 35th century BC to mark the constellation of Orion and therefore a manifestation of a Neolithic astral region. other sources say it could be Romano-British. More recently Professor Martin Bell suggested that The Long Man was cut in the snowbound hills near Wilmington in the 16th or 17th century. As an interesting fact, It was restored in 1873 by a group lead by the vicar of Glynde, Reverend William de St Croix by marking out the outline with yellow bricks whitewashed in lime mortar. I have often visited him in my walks along the South Downs, and my friend Joss showed me recently a wonderful woodcut of the ‘Long Man’ from Ravilious, and also by Ravilious the watercolour in an exhibit in The Towner in Eastbourne. It was a matter of time for the Long Man to be a subject for one of my prints. The Long Man is crossed by innumerable terraced paths formed by the grazing herd of sheep. These grass paths are cut deep in the North facing steep hills of The Downs and cast long shadows.

About Alejandro Martinez:
He was born in Granada, Spain, in 1973. He studied architecture at the Universidad de Sevilla and graduated in 1998. He has always had a passion for drawing and in parallel with his architectural training, he nurtured his particular interest in pen and ink drawings with graphic design.
From 2000 he worked as an architect in the UK. In 2006, longing for the proximity of the sea, he moved to Brighton. This change of scenery provided him with a rich gallery of experiences from which to draw inspiration. The subjects for his work varies with influences drawn from architectural detail, city views, landscapes, motion and still life.
