Bean na h-Éireann Cremation Urn
Ireland is often represented as a woman on the ancient Irish Harp which is unique to our Celtic Irish heritage. This elegant Irish Urn is named as a celebration of the“ woman of Ireland” or
Bean na h-Éireann in Gaelic.( Ban na hairin)
And also attributed to the many prominent Irish women our culture has produced throughout history. Ériu – Matron Goddess of Ireland to which she gave her name ‘Érin’ to Erins green Isle. Gráinne Ní Mhaol, Countess Markievicz and the Cumann na mBán, and more recently president Mary Mc Aleese. Our Urn marries together the iconic harp symbol of Ireland with its beauty, form and grace. A Celtic collar knot represents how the Irish are all bound together for eternity. This Urn has a beautiful feel and texture and you will clearly see the hand-thrown nature of the piece. Cremation was practiced in Ireland 5,000 years ago and across many ancient civilizations
The colors are earthy so they represent the timeless beauty found in the nature of Ireland and its seas. Our artisan mixes his own glazes and calls this ‘Lough Blue’- a rich ultramarine echoing the depths of Carlingford Lough.
