Celtic Dog Oval
Dog - Loyalty, Companionship
To the Celtic peoples, dogs have often symbolized the strong bond of companionship and loyalty between human and animal. The Celtic goddess to protect travelers, Nehalennia, is often depicted with dogs at her side. Dogs figured prominently in Celtic artwork, especially within the Books of Kells, Durrow, and Lindisfarne. Fiercely protective of their human families, the barking of a faithful dog can be a first alert to danger or concern.
Almost everywhere the ancient Celts travelled, they left their intricate knotwork behind - on stone, tattoos, manuscripts, and in architecture.
Here the designs are fired into porcelain at 2200 degrees, so they will not peel or wear off. Each of the designs are presented in a gift box with a descriptive card. They are available in small and large sizes, and come on a 32" braided rayon cord.
