Giclee print of an original watercolour.

Open Edition.

Sir Clough Williams Ellis the eccentric creator of Portmeirion was a veritable magpie when it came to collections. He would scour the land in search of any suitable architectual delight to adorn his life's work. The Dome was quite a late addition to his enterprise and it was when someone mentioned that Portmeirion village was missing a commanding structure such as a dome that he started to build one. He then bought a rather grand fireplace from a stately home in Cheshire and placed it in front of the dome as a rather opulent entrance, an imaginative work of genius.
The statue of Hercules was the work of William Brodie and believed to have been created around 1863. It was bought by Sir Clough in 1960.
