Meaning of Design

Ardagh Chalice: Ranks with the Book Of Kells as one of the finest known works of Celtic art, is thought to have been made in the 9th century AD.

A large, two-handled silver cup, decorated with gold, gilt bronze, brass, lead pewter and enamel, assembled from 354 separate pieces. The names of the apostles are incised in a frieze around the bowl, below a girdle bearing inset gold wirework panels of animals, birds, and geometric interlace. Techniques used include hammering, engraving, Lost-wax casting, filigree applique, cloisonne and enameling.

It was found in 1868, together with a small bronze cup and four brooches, by two boys, Jim Quin and Paddy Flanagan, digging in a potato field on the south-western side of a rath (ring fort) called Reerasta, beside the village of Ardagh, County Limerick, Ireland. It had a bronze cup within it, and four ornate brooches (fibulae). Buried without the least protection as they were, the pieces must have been interred in a hurry, probably temporarily, as the owner probably intended to return for them at a later time.

Celtic Crosses: Throughout Ireland & Scotland, the celts crafted these magnificent symbols in stone. Celtic Crosses pre-date Christianity and were first used by pagans to worship the sun. In pagan times the circle of the celtic cross represented the sun, being the center of their lives. It was not untill the 4th century AD when it was introduced by the first Christian Roman Emperor Constantine, that the Celtic Cross was used to represent Christ's victory. During the great conversion of many pagans to christianity, Christian Philosophers adapted the Celtic Cross and thought the meaning of the circle to represent Christ, the center of Christianity.
