Celtic hounds pin handcrafted on the Wild Atlantic Way, Ireland by Paul Connolly.
This handcrafted Celtic brooch from Ireland is decorated with a circular Celtic Hound design, showing the use of animals as interlacing ornaments. In Celtic myth tales hounds are emblematic of extreme loyalty, honour and courage. From the Book of Kells, this is a unique interpretation of three dogs chasing the other’s tail. These three dogs represent the three beneficial phases of the dog. In ancient times the dog was a symbol for loyalty. Second, the tribes depended on the dog for guarding. Finally, it was the healing power of the dog that was widely respected.
The name of the God Cuchulain is literally “ Hound of Culann”.
Highly polished brass , the dark hue of the contrasting etched Celtic hound design compliments the craftsmanship of this handmade Celtic jewellery from Ireland.
Soldered safety pin.
Handcrafted in West Cork, Beara, Ireland by Paul Connolly.
