The Blue Minch showing the Siant Isles which are situated in the Minch between the Outer Hebrides and mainland Scotland - and the Blue Men of the Minch – a tribe of watery, blue-skinned sea-spirits that live in the waters of the channel – believed to lure seafarers to a watery grave. According to Adam Nicholson’s book “Sea Room”, their beguiling chant goes as follows:
Ickle Ockle Blue Bockle, 
Fishes in the sea, 
If you’re looking for a lover, 
Please choose me.
Igneous and intrusive Dolerite columns that can be seen on the islands, are shown on the back of the piece. The main subject however is a Whitetailed Sea Eagle. These birds have nested on the islands for centuries.
