Celtic Keepsake/Jewellery Boxes
The knots, plait-work or weaving are a stunning feature of Celtic spiritual artwork. The weaving patterns represent the tribal migrations, spiritual devotion and travels through life. The never-ending knot work shows the past, present and unknown future from birth to the migration of the soul. These beautiful designs have a European heritage in Celtic pagan and Christian culture – especially in Ireland, England, Wales, Scotland, France, Germany, Spain, Switzerland and Italy. The Irish Book of Kells and the Lindisfarne Gospels are great examples of Christian Celtic artistry.
The Scottish Lion is used in heraldry and symbolises bravery, nobility, royalty, strength and valour. The lion is the king of beasts and therefore a noble symbol of strength in battle. The lion is the royal standard of Scotland – Richard the Lionheart who ruled England and Scotland used a shield with three lions on it in his Crusade into the holy land. This symbol represents the passion of the Scottish people.
