We're honored to help you celebrate Irish heritage and bring you the ancient Celtic designs that many of our families have requested. We've incorporated shamrocks, claddagh, deep shades of emerald green, and of course the celtic knot into many of our meaningful Celtic urns.
The delicate twists and turns of the Celtic knot are one of the best known motifs in jewelry and art and are found in ancient stone art and tattoos, in illuminated manuscripts – in fact, the Celtic knot can be found just about anywhere the Celtic people have traveled. Similar designs exist in Norse culture and even as far as China.
Celtic knots were being created in pre-Christian times and the design has carried many different meanings throughout history. At various times, they represented different themes such as nature and life, the idea of eternity, the relationship between God and man, unstoppable love and much more. These knots are most known for their use in the decoration of early Christian monuments but they are still used today and can be found on a number of our Celtic urns.
Many of our Celtic urns also display the Celtic cross: a Latin cross with a wide circle around the middle. The Celtic cross is used in a number of different design elements and isn’t necessarily a religious icon. Many people interpret the cross with various meanings. Back in medieval times, the cross was engraved with biblical verses and used as an educational tool. Oftentimes it was also displayed publically, much like the Christian cross is displayed today in cemeteries and at churches. Today, many organizations use the Celtic cross to represent and embolden their Irish heritage. The symbol is also commonly found on jewelry, clothing and other designs.
