Dog Pet Urn – ‘The Sleeping Dog XL’ additional cost in Cooley Green
This is the combined extra cost on top of the standrad Sleeping dog Urn to create a commission piece for a wolfhound.
The sleeping Dog Pet Urn, or An Madra Codlata, is a beautiful hand-crafted Ceramic Urn enhanced by Celtic design and symbolism.
This Urn is unique as it is handmade in an Irish Studio by one of Ireland's top Ceramicists.
The sleeping dog (‘Madra’ in Gaelic) design was created by Ciaran and inspired by the ancient legend of Cú Chulainn Ireland’s most famous warrior.
Protector of the home and loyal companion the Celtic dog/Irish wolfhound features throughout Irish history,
most famously immortalized in the book of ‘Kells’ 800 AD.
A Celtic collar knot on this Pet urn represents how the dog and their companion 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.
