I carved this for my loving wife, who has some Irish ancestry.
The Claddagh is a design of a heart being encircled by a pair of delicate hands with a crown above the heart.
It is a symbol of Love, Friendship, & Loyalty. The hands signify friendship, the crown loyalty, and the heart love.
This Celtic knot was more difficult to draw than to carve, with all those interwoven lines.
The name “Bairbre” is the Celtic name for Barbara, which is the name of my wife.
Black Walnut, Dimensions, 12” x 15”
This beautiful wood is from a salvaged railroad tie.
