Artist's Description

The appearance of Dolphins, off the shores of Ireland urged the Celts to contemplate an unknown universe – the sea.

Those who could not settle to simply cogitate – Celtic seafarers held the dolphin in high regard.

It became a symbol of friendship, intelligence, and good luck.

Its status of luck was likely related to the fact that the dolphin was most commonly seen on the seas when the weather and waves were calm and fair.

The Celts innately understood the intimate relationship between nature and beast.

However, did the sight of the lucky dolphin cause fair weather, or was it the weather beckoned the dolphin out of its depths?

Clearly, it’s a question of which came first – the chicken or the egg.

Regardless, the dolphin is viewed as quite lucky indeed – and this quality combined with it’s cleverness and speed in the waters made the dolphin a highly respected among Celtic animals.
