The Tara Urn – Cobalt (With Free Oak Base)
A Gaelic Royal Urn for Ashes.
represents all that is the heart of the Irish Island nation. The Hill of Tara
is most synonymous in myth as the residence of the High King of Ireland. Tara gets its name from Teamhair na Rí meaning ‘sanctuary of the Kings.' It is important as the traditional inauguration site of the ancient High Kings of Ireland. However, Tara was an important site long before the High Kings. A passage tomb known as Dumha na nGiall (meaning ‘the mound of the hostages') is the oldest visible monument and dates from around 3,000 BC. Many Urns have been found in locations such as Newgrange, Knowth, and Dowth and are thought to have held the remains of the Gaelic Royals.
This style of Urn represents the stone carvings found within these famous tombs
with detailing on the handles and lid. The Tara Cremation Urn for ashes has the powerful Celtic Spiral detailed in the lid and a discrete spiral rivet on the handles, influenced by our Irish heritage.
Included with the Urn is a handmade Oak plinth
- Created and signed by an Irish National award-winning Wood turner
. It can be engraved on request. See sample image.
Color of Cremation Urn
Each Urn is unique as the glaze is hand applied individually and no two Urns are the same. The glaze color represents the greens of our land, shore. The blues represent the depths of our seas and lighter blue where the sea washes up on our beaches to meet sea moss-covered rocks along our shoreline.
