Pyrography (wood burning) is the art of using a heated tool to create intricate designs on various surfaces, primarily wood. This technique involves controlled burning to achieve detailed patterns, resulting in a unique visual effect. Throughout history, pyrography has been employed to decorate objects, convey symbolism, and even communicate cultural narratives.
In the context of Celtic art, dogs were often featured in designs due to their significance in Celtic mythology and society. These depictions represented loyalty, protection, and kinship. For instance, the "Celtic hound" motif is known for its elongated, graceful form, reflecting the Celts' reverence for these animals.
Exploring the historical repertoire of Celtic dog designs reveals a variety of stylized representations, from intricate knotwork patterns to fluid, curvilinear renditions. These designs were utilized in various artifacts, such as jewelry, manuscripts, and woodwork.
I am happy to present you my Celtic creation and I'd like to know your opinion on it.
