This unique home decor piece is dedicated to Celtic pride in general. The base is made from high quality Irish oak bog wood (description below). Attached to the top is a naturally sourced Red Fox skull from England. Surrounding the skull is jasper and agates from Agate Beach, Oregon, a natural beach hag stone from Florida, Icelandic spar and quartz. Burned onto the base in Ogham it says,”Bród ceilteach” which in Gaelic means Celtic pride.
This Oak has seasoned for over 7 years prior to being made available.
This Bog Oak is of the highest quality and it has been well seasoned and only the most dense wood has been selected. The Bog Oak that I work with was unearthed in County Roscommon Ireland, an area not far from Rathcroghan the Ancient seat of Queen Medb in Connaught.
Bog Oak Wood is a rare and fascinating material, preserved in the unique conditions of the peat bogs for thousands of years.
Trees that fell into the bogs and lakes of Ireland enjoyed protection from decay due to the anaerobic condition of this environment, and over the centuries went through a chemical process staining the wood to the Black color of today.
The Oak itself dates from between 3000 to 8000 years old.
