Claddagh, The Celtic Claddagh wreath - A unique cast stone Claddagh plaque. The Irish symbolism of the Claddagh is that the Heart means Love, the Hands mean Friendship and the Crown means Loyalty. The Claddagh design is used in lots of Celtic jewelry. The sculpture is suitable to be hung outdoors and has a copper hanger on the back. Being cast stone, there is some weight to the item. Overall size is 11" x 12" x 1.5" , comes in two finishes: aged stone (light grey/moss with age spots) not shown and Ancient Bronze As shown in pics( hand layered in Bronze and an acid is applied to give an aged patina and then sealed. the Ancient Bronze finish is also hand signed by the sculptor) The BRONZE finish is shown,. A work of American sculpture Matthew Kent. This is one of my best all time selling stone plaques and has been featured in many magazines. A true classic to own and I never stop enjoy making them for customers. Makes a great gift for Irish and Celtic folk and especially at weddings or engagements.
