“The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine upon you & be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you & give you peace.” Don’t we all truly pray that our priests will experience the peace they need to endeavor in their priestly duties? We love our priests. Remind your priest that he is loved and cared for each day with this beautiful work of Irish art. This is a true keepsake that he will cherish. 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.
