What is it about the arts of the ancient Celts that make them so fascinating for todays fashions and jewellery, graphic design and even architecture? Its as though their ancient magical powers still cast a spell over us. Its easy to see why, when you become familiar with the stories and the representations of the 50 most important symbol groupings. Illustrated texts reveal dozens of cultic figures featured in ancient Celtic rituals, including wild animals and birds, reptiles and fish, trees and flowers, numbers, spirals, crosses, circles and many other designs. Each spread depicts the qualities and values they symbolise, with examples of characters and stories from ancient myths that can be incorporated into modern-day designs.
