'Let Love and Friendship reign forever'. These words refer to the famous Claddagh Ring from Galway, a traditional wedding ring dating from the 17th century, which comprised a heart held by two hands, surmounted by a crown.
This carving 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.
