Just when we need it most, our faith in God steps in to save us. Faith is that still small voice of God that reminds us not to despair, to go ahead and take chances, and to endeavor each day with the gift of knowing we are not alone. This Irish saying recalls a faith that allows us to fly when we think we are grounded. This makes a loving gift for anyone, most especially yourself! 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 same tradition.
