Description
Noted contemporary Celtic artist and best-selling author Courtney Davis celebrates the beautiful and intricate artistry of the great Celtic Christian scribes. Early Celtic artists drew upon an even more ancient tradition and heritage to design exquisitely patterned jewelry, metalwork, and carvings. The arrival of Celtic Christianity transformed their work into the glorification of God, which can be seen in magnificently illustrated manuscripts such as the Book of Kells and the Lindisfarne Gospels. Drawing upon these two historical traditions, Davis offers a fresh look at Celtic ornamentation. With examples from the famous manuscripts and gospels and other works, he reinterprets in graphic detail the skills of the Celtic scribes and provides insight into their contemplative but highly creative lives.
