story-of-scottish-art

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b06h7xsm/the-story-of-scottish-art-episode-1-Lachlan Goudie visits the Ring of Brodgar in Orkney, a stone circle that has stood for thousands of years. He also encounters the Westray Wife, an ancient figurine on the island of Westray that is the oldest sculpted human figure in the British Isles.
There is also a look at the sophisticated art of the Picts and the Gaels, the exuberant Renaissance period of the early Stuart kings, and the destruction of the Reformation, when religious artworks in Scotland were all but wiped out.
