To this day, the core of Ireland’s heritage remains unmistakably Celtic, and it is fair to say that his pen will be an eagerly awaited gift honouring that heritage, pride, courage and values. The pen features intricate Celtic Knot scrollwork on the tip, clip and end, and an emerald colour cabochon on the cap. The Celtic Knot motif dates back to the 5th century and represents the truth of eternity and interconnected spirit. Your gift recipient doesn’t need to be of Celtic origin to appreciate this pen; the symbolism of Celtic culture is universal.
The Yew tree has played a tremendous role in shaping religious beliefs, being associated with immortality and rebirth or spiritual resurrection. To the ancient Celts and Druids, it was a sacred tree and adorned many of their religious sites. Churches were often built on these ancient religious sites and inherited the yew trees already there - one can find a yew tree in many a churchyard. Muckross Abbey, and a huge Yew tree in the middle of the Abbey’s cloister. It was planted when the friary was first built in 1448 by Dónal McCarthy Mór – the chieftain of the area. That same tree can still be seen and enjoyed today – it’s an old Irish Yew tree. One fact is certain, however, trees, including the yew, were, like the Sun and Moon, instrumental in the formation of just about all literary and religious traditions and a major inspiration to many artists. It seems that the 'wise' were always associated with trees.
