... SYMBOLS OF IRELAND ...

 Irelandís great poet and symbolist, W. B. Yeats described a symbol as the only possible expression of some invisible essence, 'a transparent lamp about some invisible flame.'  Rather than fixing a meaning, symbols set meaning free. They resonate with our intuitive mind, letting go of logical thinking. Symbols speak the language of the soul. 
(From Wild Goose Website)

CENTURIES
OF CELTIC FOLK ART
 This beautiful collection was inspired by and reproduced from centuries of Celtic folk art found throughout Ireland.  A truly beautiful tribute to the people of the world who have Irish blood (and we all have a little Irish running in our veins), even if it is only in spirit.  The spirit of the Irish is a spirit of survival and a true sense of the joy of life! Each item below carries this spirit so deeply ingrained in its people!

Glory be - 'tis good to have an Irish Mother in Law from Roscommon! My children all have Irish blood running in their veins and each one carries this spirit of joy!

Rings were first made in Kinsale in 1700.

BE STILL - click for more information
WG.317 - BE STILL 
AND KNOW THAT I AM

15 x 6 in. - Be still and know that I am God. Stillness and meditation, an alternative to the confusion of everyday life, can be a starting point for prayer and knowledge of God. Exodus 3:14 "I am that I am." This declaration of the eternal God expresses his unity and spirituality. En Exodus, for the Jews in bondage, it was an assurance of the fact of deliverance, but not the means. 'Art has something to do with with achievement of stillness in the midst of chaos. A stillness which characterizes prayer, too, and the eye of the storm ... an arrest in the midst of distraction' (Saul Bellow).

Did St Brendan discover America before Columbus?
BANTRY BOAT - click for more information
 6th CENTURY VOYAGE?
Many believe the Celtic Cross  was a navigational device.  (Similar to a sextant,  it will measure the angle of the stars and identify both latitude and longtitude. Read more on the internet about this amazing concept.
+
 (This original design, by the Irish artist 
 Kathleen Smyth, was the first carved replica of the Bantry Boat, 1965.)
ABOUT THE BANTRY BOAT PLAQUE
12.5  x 5.25 - A curragh or skin covered boat, with the helmsman urging on four oarsmen as they strike heavenwards amid a sea of crosses. (Note the boat is vertical on the staff of the original Kilnaruane Pillar, standing in a field above Bantry Bay. West Cork.) this amazingly accurate depiction of oarsmen dates from the early Christian period.  It may celebrate St Brendan who in the 6th Century with his crew of four discovered America some 1,000 years before Columbus. Mythically, it depicts the journey of Everyman, sailing across unchartered perilous seas to reach heaven or hell. Or, the Church ferrying its flock to heaven through seas of adversity.
