Celtic Keepsake/Jewellery Box
Celtic Irish Shamrock
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 Shamrock (Gaelic) is the symbol of Ireland. A shamrock is a young clover with three leaves. This three leaf clover was used to by Saint Patrick to help people understand the holy trinity: Father, Son and Holy Ghost. The Shamrock was also used for medicinal purposes. The rule of three has ancient pagan origins – Triple goddesses were already a part of the Celtic, Roman and European world. The shamrock represents faith, hope and love!
