Zoomorphic Designs

Picture of Celtic Birds and Celtic Dogs

Left: Celtic Birds - CLTBDS1, Right: Celtic Dogs - CLTDGS1

These designs are inspired by the Celtic style zoomorphic creatures found on illuminated manuscripts of the early Christian period in Ireland. Featured are a Celtic Birds Wall Hanging and the Celtic Dogs.

To simulate the effect of the vibrant pigments used in the original ornaments they have been worked entirely in glistening Anchor Marlitt thread. This is a shiny viscose thread and is therefore a little harder to work with than standard thread. Only Anchor Marlitt and scheme is provided, but if desired you may substitute six-stranded cotton.

Celtic Birds wall hanging completed measures 5" x 11" (126mm x 278mm) and is displayed here on 14ct ivory (cream) Aida. Completed Celtic Dogs is 4" (101mm) square, and is displayed here with wood effect flexisquare on 14ct ivory (cream) Aida.
