This tapestry design incorporates different motifs and is a good representation of the variations found in Irish Celtic design. These include: triskeles, interlace, labyrinths, spirals and stylized animals. The composition of the design takes a layered effect, however the uniqueness of each Celtic motif is clearly visible through the usage of vibrant contrasting colors. These colors, embellished in gold and bronze, add a richness in keeping with Christian Celtic manuscript artwork found in the middle ages.
Historical Significance of Design Elements Chosen:
This tapestry design incorporates motifs representative of Irish Celtic design. Celtic motifs, which are intricate art forms, are also considered to contain symbols of a sacred knowledge. The Christian missionaries who created the medieval manuscripts incorporated into their ranks, Celtic bards, poets and seers. These were craftspeople initiated in a form of sacred geometry taught by the druids – the high priests from Ireland’s pagan world. This theme is fascinating due to the hidden depths not obvious to the naked eye.
