The blessing reads:
“Blessed are the merry-makers, the dreamers, the hopeless romantics, who love the world with all their hearts.”
This design, more abstract in nature, is comprised of two elements: a central interwoven lion and peacock design surrounded by a bronze spiral. Both elements, embellished in gold, create a radial effect in the composition. The colors in this design are also typical of those used in medieval manuscripts, where most pigments were sourced from the natural world in the surrounding countryside. The spiral is considered by many to be a universal symbol of energy and expansion of consciousness.
Historical Significance of Design Elements Used:
The spiral, although considered a Celtic design, is in fact a megalithic symbol dating back to 2,500 years prior to the arrival of the Celts in Ireland. In Celtic artwork, the spiral design can be formed from single, double, triple or quadruple swirls. These swirls are joined together in either an S or C shape. In the early Christian monastic art period, the triple spiral or triskele was employed to represent the Holy Trinity: God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. To this day, spiral patterns appear on many forms of Celtic art and craftwork, including pagan stone sculpture, Iron Age weaponry, Celtic crosses, illuminated manuscripts, and ornamental jewelry.
