Angels feature prominently in the Book of Kells, playing a very significant part in the manuscript, both as messengers and protectors. Tradition teaches that there have always been angels to call upon. Widely regarded as Ireland's finest national treasure, the Book of Kells represents the pinnacle of Celtic illuminated artwork. It contains lavishly decorated copy, in Latin, of the four gospels. This beautiful souvenir, finished in pure bronze, is inspired by imagery in the great manuscript.
