It is commonly accepted that the joining hands, heart and crown represent a perpetual bond of friendship, love and loyalty. Wearing a Claddagh ring with the heart pointing out signifies the wearer is unattached if the heart is pointing in towards the wearers own heart, then that heart is taken. This unique plaque is made by a process known as Intarsia which is the ancient art of making pictorial mosaics by laying precious and exotic woods onto a solid wood surface. Seven different woods are used to make these Celtic designs, creating a 3D effect. It is a tasteful and beautiful gift that can be displayed in any home. This wooden plaque is 11.5cm x 11.5cm.
