Ceramic Celtic Shamrock tile

Happy St. Paddy's day!
This is our 6 x 6 Shamrock tile, we have the same design in a 4 x 4 as well.
Available at earthsongtiles.com

Seamrog or shamrock, although not the official symbol of Ireland, that being the harp, is the one that is associated with Ireland more than any other emblem.
For the ancient Druids the wild shamrock, known as wood sorrel was a mystic symbol representing joy, maternal tenderness and associated with the Celtic sun wheel. The Druids considered the shamrocks impressive vitality & medicinal qualities to be a sign of sacredness.
