Inspired by the Emerald Isle with original soundhole designs.
An ancient Celtic interlace pattern, interpreted in a contemporary fashion at the soundhole of this instrument, create a stunning look – punctuated by a pelta mother-of-pearl motif (select horse or swan on the drop down menu) at the 12th fret designed by henna artist Alex Morgan, against an ebony fingerboard. A circular triangle is found at the headstock, and echoed at the heelstock, for the player’s enjoyment.
The swan is a symbol of love and fidelity, because swans sustain their relationship for life. The swan also has a connection to music, as its feathers were often used in the ritual cloak of the Celtic bards.
The horse was revered by the Celts for its speed and vigor, and associated with sovereignty, abundance and guidance.
