Relief carved ceramic thistle tile

4x4 Relief carved and handpainted thistle tile
Available at earthsongtiles.com
The thistle, a favorite food of many song birds, especially finches, is an ancient Celtic symbol for nobility of both character & birth. It has been the national emblem of Scotland for well over 500 years.
This is an excerpt from a Robert Burns poem, writen in reply to        
' The Guid Wife of Wauchope House'  a poem writen to Burns by Elizabeth Scott 1787.

The rough burr-thistle,
spreading wide among the bearded bear
I turn'd the weeder-clips aside
A'n spare'd the symbol dear
No nation, no station
my envy e'er could raise:
A Scot still, but blot still,
I knew know higher praise.
