This beautifully intricate design comes from a page of the 8th century Lindisfarne Gospel book. Inspired by Eastern and Celtic motifs, this early English manuscript illumination is called a "carpet" because of its resemblance to a fine tapestry.
There remains an Orthodox West - and I was beyond excited to see and purchase this lovely icon. You can see Pictish and Celtic influences in the artwork - it's vibrant and regal. I began studying the life and ministry of Saint Adan, an Irish monk sent to minister to the folks in Northumbria who were returning to their pagan ways because of this icon. Thanks, LegacyIcons, for including a few items of Western Orthodoxy!
The color is beautiful, it’s a lovely example of Celtic art. It has added some much to my prayer wall. I highly recommend.
A beautiful cross from the Lindisfarne Gospels. Incredible detail and artwork quintessential of the Celtic tradition brought to Northumbria by St. Aidan. Wonderful to see the Orthodoxy of the Gaels represented here!
