This highly decorated letter 'm,' featuring a mother bird feeding her baby, is the beginning of the word 'magnificat,' the song Mary is believed to have sung on learning that she was destined to be the mother of Jesus. 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.
