At last, Celtic civilization receives a worthy tribute: a gallery of full-color paintings representing culture from ancient artifacts (pagan and Christian) to the contemporary artistic renaissance now underway. The beautiful and mysterious images include an array of warriors and saints; motifs of nature, sun and seasons; metalwork and stonework; and sacred places. An expert's text analyzes Celtic history, craftsmanship, symbolism, legends, and religious life. From Celtic gods to illuminated gospels, here is inspiration for centuries to come.
