Urn Garden Explains Celtic Urns

celtic urns for ashes The Celtic Knot is one of the best known motifs in Celtic jewelry and art. The delicate twists and turns are found in ancient stone art and tattoos, in illuminated manuscripts- in fact, just about anywhere the Celtic people have traveled. Similar designs exist in Norse culture, and as far as China.

Celtic knots were being created in pre-Christian times, these knots are most known for their use in the decoration of early Christian monuments and manuscripts like the 8th century Book of Kells, but they are still used today and Urn Garden is honored to bring you the ancient Celtic urn designs that many of our families have requested.

While many of the ancient Celtic Knot designs certainly had some spiritually significant meaning, these have been lost to the ages. The continual looping of the designs suggests themes of eternity and interconnectedness, and knots may have been made at one time to foil evil spirits. Interwoven figures of people and animals may have represented the interdependent nature of life. Birds seem to be heavily featured. Two or more knots laced together symbolize lovers, hunters and their prey, God and man, etc. Some knots were used as magical talismans for protection.

Urn Garden has created the Celtic Knot keepsake line for families that plan to share, scatter, spread or bury ashes and want a small keepsake for their loved one. Honoring the rich tradition of Celtic lore, the strong symbol of the Celtic Cross is featured in the Urn Garden Celtic Cross Keepsake. The ring on a Celtic cross is a symbol of Irish Christianity and stands for the sun and eternity.

Keepsake urns are a smaller scaled version of the adult urns and will usually hold anywhere from a few tablespoons up to a 1/2 cup of ashes, lock of hair, dried flowers, sacred burial ground, etc. Families can order individual keepsake urns for the whole family if desired.
