Tree of Life Tile
The label on back of tile reads...
The true meaning behind Celtic designs is lost in the mists of history, little real documentary evidence exists today. Whatever the thoughts in the minds of those artists long ago we encourage you to enjoy their beauty and dream your own thoughts.
The Tree of Life symbolically stands for spituality, wisdom and hope. The tree is the source of sustenance in that it gave shelter, warmth and food. Amongst all tree the Oak was considered the most sacred. The ancient Celts believed all living things were spiritual, mystical beings, not just inanimate objects to be exploited. They believed trees in particular were a source of great wisdom with the power to bridge the gap between the upper and lower worlds and bring blessings from the gods.
