The Celtic Shield Urn
The Celtic Shield Knot has been used to indicate protection against evil influences. From early days, the Celts used this symbol to chase away evil spirits and benevolent energies from their midst.
It is used in artwork, jewelry, and retail items that indicate love, loyalty, and unity.
There’s much spirituality attached to the Celtic Shield, the bearer of the Celtic shield trusts in its protective qualities.
The Celtic Shield is believed to shield one from internal and external enemies.
It wards off negative influences and empowers all who bear it to be forever protected behind it.
This particular glaze was inspired by the Irish mountain landscape of both Heather and moss.
The Celtic Shield is inspired by an Ancient Irish Celtic Shield.
Discovered in 1863, preserved in a bog in Kiltubbrid, 10 feet below the surface and it has been aged at about 400bc or – 2400 years old from the late Celtic period.
The spiral design on the Celtic shield Urn would be influenced by the widespread taboo and superstition against closed rings which prevailed at the time in Celtic Ireland.
