Celtic Knot Stained Glass
To give each of these pieces a signature Royal Tara flair, one or several traditional Celtic designs are often incorporated into their design -- and these gorgeously whimsical wall hangings are no different. One prominently-recurring feature on this stained glasses art is the Celtic knot, an essential element of some of the recorded oldest artwork to have ever been produced in Ireland. The Celtic knots appearing on these panels evoke the look of those old-world examples: take, for instance, the decorative engravings on the 9th century stone high crosses that pepper the Irish countryside, or the corner details on the pages of the world-famous Book of Kells, an illuminated manuscript housed today in the library at Trinity College, Dublin. The craftsmen at Royal Tara aren’t shy about showing off their knowledge of the many different variations of the knot, either!
Trinity Knot Stained Glass
There’s the Trinity knot, a three-pointed specimen associated by Christians with the powers of the Father, the Son, and the Holy spirit, and by pagans with the natural forces of earth, air, and water; the spiral knot, a dizzying trio of loops said to represent the mystery of life; and the endless knot, a never-ending ladder-like knot that acts as a reminder of the eternal nature of true love. Bear all of these meanings in mind while picking out your own stained glass wall panel from our selection here -- your knowledge of the Celtic knots’ symbolism will make it all the more special when it hangs in your home!
Stained Glass Irish Blessings
Also in abundance in the Royal Tara stained glass window panels collection are many traditional Irish blessings. In the Ireland of yesteryear, it was commonly believed that words were more than just words; when spoken with purpose and intention, they could change the course of fate. As such, to receive a blessing from a well-wisher (or a curse from an enemy!) was no meager thing. Many of the most popular traditional blessings make appearances in this panel range: there’s the classic “God bless our home,” “Home is where the heart is,” and “May you live long and laugh often,”:
Bless this Home Oval Panel- this hand-painted oval stained glass panel is designed with a sprightly bird bursting with color and an elegant Celtic Knot accent.
Home is where the Heart is Gothic Panel- this panel exudes vintage elegance with jewel-toned shades of green, blue, and gold in a frame shaped like a stunning gothic window.
Irish Blessing Framed by Traditional Celtic Knot- this beautiful square shaped frame displays the “May the road rise to meet you / May the wind be always at your back / May the sun shine warm upon your face / And the rain fall soft upon your fields / And until we meet again / May God hold you in the hollow of his hand.”
Round Stained Glass Slainte- this round panel features the most simple blessing of all -- “Slainte,” or the Irish language word for “Cheers!”
