Hounds of Cúchulainn

Pendant

The most we know about the Celts comes from their objects of art they left behind - cave paintings, items consisting of metal and in rare cases famous writings like the Book of Kells tell about a big culture. After all the famous Celts that were the legendary ancestors of the Englishmen passed on most of their stories and myths only by oral tradition, so that only pieces of their legends and tales lasted till today.
For the Celts the material and the spiritual world were merging seamlessly, because they saw no difference between natural and supernatural reality and magic was an inherent part of every day life. The most popular motives in Celtic art were animals, spirals, knots, key patterns and intertwined figures, all symbols of Celtic religion and their belief in magic, unity, eternity and the endless cycle of life, death and rebirth. Celtic art finally made its way from England and Ireland to Europe in the years from 100 B.C. to 900 A.D.
The Welsh Goddess of Horses Rhiannon was especially worshipped by the Celts and according to ancient belief Rhiannon is said to grant fertility and abundance. Horses were an important part of the Celtic culture and therefore the name of the goddess Rhiannon is derived from Rigantona meaning "The Great High Queen". Stories about Rhiannon can be found in the medieval collection of legends Mabinogion.
This piece of jewelry was inspired by Celtic art and magic and is dedicated to the legends of Rhiannon - jewelry of this collection therefore can enrich and transform our life since the Celtic magic of the goddess is potent until today. This piece of jewelry possesses qualities that were admired by the ancient Celts and that they wanted to attract into their lifes by wearing similar charms and talismans.

Hounds of Cúchulainn: The name of the Irish hero Cúchulainn means Hound of Culann, since his first heroic deed in his early youth was to kill the invincible hound of the smith Culann. Cúchulainn was a famous guardian of the holy land - he protected his people and defended their territory. His totem-animals were his two loyal hounds and this pendant is said to aid its wearer in achieving his goals.

About us

AvalonsTreasury.com: Arrow, Mist (Page: Hounds of Cúchulainn) [136 x 22 px]
We were always fascinated by pieces of jewelry designed according to historical artwork and magical and other old motifs are a main area of our jewelry collection until today. Nowadays we all are surrounded by designs and motifs from all over the world which we usually choose according to visual aspects without considering the original meaning and symbolism of the various depictions. For sure the beauty of the different designs and materials is a good reason for selecting them but the affinity to a special piece of jewelry or art craft can be enhanced if one knows its deeper meaning and its origin. For this reason we always placed value on the accurate representation and information explaining the various pieces of jewelry in our collection.
 
Since the beginning of mankind jewelry served several different purposes. Already before the invention of money it was for example used as a kind of currency, as a status symbol or as a valuable asset that even could be passed on to future generations. Many pieces of jewelry also had a functional purpose like it is the case with fastenings for clothes, safety pins and belt buckles. However, at a more spiritual level the jewelry also had a symbolic meaning, showed the affiliation to and the status in a social group, and was worn for the protection from evil or simply to show one's own taste.
 
On account of these many different purposes the meaning of single pieces of jewelry can be very different and depends on the belief and the point of view of the respective manufacturer. In some cultures, e.g., bracelets were used as wedding jewelry, like the wedding rings of today, in other societies necklaces served the same purpose. The symbolic meaning of a piece of jewelry often cannot only be found in the piece itself, but also in its decorations or the used materials. In some cultures it is usual to give pieces of jewelry as a gift at certain important times in life which should emphasize the symbolic meaning of these events with the help of their decorations. These pieces were then often worn as amulets or talismans and were believed to protect and support its wearer during this new situation in life.
 
Not only the used symbols and decorations differ strongly between the cultures - a huge number of different materials were also used in the course of time. In the beginnings especially shells and pearls of wood and bone were used, because these natural materials were readily available and could easily be processed. Later the precious metals silver and gold became more and more important and also the use of precious stones increased. Nowadays all possible materials are used to underline the meaning of a piece of jewelry even further thereby creating pendants and other jewelry that could not be designed using traditional materials.
