About Peter Charters
This beautiful carving of a Celtic Crane was adapted from a sketch in the Book of Kells.
The crane was sacred to the Celts, reflecting the link between air and water and was often depicted with the willow tree.
It was thought to have the ability to metamorphasise and also carry the souls of the dead to the other world.
It is depicted entwined in the tree of life.
Approx size: 25cm tall x 7.5cm wide (approx 10cm inc neck) x 7.5 deep.
