“Be still and know that I Am” Words spoken by our Lord Jesus Christ who constantly reminds us that we should have faith in Him because He is steadfastly faithful to us. This beautiful print is a piece of art that will bring calm and God's loving presence to any room in your home, or an office. The artist is Kevin Dillon and each original piece, before copied, is constructed when he crushes semi-precious stones – lapis lazuli, cinnabar, azurite and others, to make his own paints. Using a dip pen or goose quill, he meticulously applies the letters and beautiful designs to the calf skin. One at a time, the colors are applied. And the final illumination is achieved using 24K gold leaf. The artist's seal is imprinted in molten wax at the bottom of each copy, making every print a unique piece of art from the Celtic monastic tradition. All works are based on The Book of Kells and constructed in that tradition.

|Review:||Psalm 46:10 has been a favorite quote of mine and going through hard times I have discussed this quote often with my priest. The Celtic print made it that much more special to me. As Mother Angelica has said, we all need our holy reminders around us.|
