In ancient times, the druids believed the Shamrock had mystical powers. To them its three leaves were a natural sign of a sacred number. This little plant was even said to warn of an approaching storm by turning up its leaves. According to legend St. Patrick himself plucked a Shamrock from the ground to explain his belief in the Holy Trinity. They say this helped convert the Irish people to Christianity. Many believed that wearing this little sprig of green would keep them from harm.
This unique plaque is made by a process known as Intarsia which is the ancient art of making pictorial mosaics by laying precious and exotic woods onto a solid wood surface. Seven different woods are used to make these Celtic designs, creating a 3D effect.
It is a tasteful and beautiful gift that can be displayed in any home.
