Irish wood & tile keepsake box with Epona - Celtic horses; Item UR-KBX-EP
This stunning keepsake cremation urn comes to us from the studios of renowned Celtic artist Jen Delyth. Her eyecatching design depicting a circle of three regal horses amongst graceful scrolling knotwork is a tribute to Epona, the horse goddess of the ancient Celts. Also known as Etain in Ireland, Epona is a protector of horses, a creature of tremendous importance to the early nomadic Celts. She is the only Celtic deity to be adopted by the Romans and even has a feast day, the Festival of Epona, held on December 18.
Welsh artist Jen Delyth specializes in Celtic art, myth and symbolism. Her green, white, and black Celtic design has been applied to a square ceramic tile and inset in the lid of a wooden box with a black lacquer finish. The hinged box has a black velveteen interior and a magnet closure.
Measuring 5 1/2" square and just over 2" tall, this beautiful box is the ideal size to hold a small portion of ashes or other memorial items.
This Celtic art keepsake box is assembled in the artist's studio here in the USA.
