Sterling Silver 1.1/2” X 1.3/8”

On 24” Sterling Silver Chain

 

The design is inspired by a fragment of a now lost carved slab from a monastic site in the West of Ireland. It shows the cross representing Christianity surrounded by the four Children of Lir in their swan shapes.

The Legend of the Children of Lir is set in Ireland a thousand years before the coming of Christianity at a time when the Mystical Thuatha De Danaan lived in harmony with the Milesains. It’s a tragic tale of jealously, betrayal, transformation, self-willed women and ultimately the redeeming and healing power of love as represented by the Christian Saint. The arrival of Christianity also is foretold in this tale.

Aedh, Fichara, Conn and their sister Fionnuala were the offspring of Lir one of the Thuatha De Danaan and his wife Aobh. When Aobh died, Lir married Aoife who in a fit of jealousy turned the Children into swans on the banks of Lake Derravargh. In which shape they lived for hundreds of years. With the coming of Christianity to Ireland St.Mochaomhog watched over them. They took on their human form before they died and were baptised by the saint.
