Eagle Of Iona | Organic T-Shirt
This design is from Sacred Knot Tattoo was hand printed in the Northern Fire studio by Sean Parry himself. It features a beastly and frowning bird of prey, an eagle similar to ones found in The Book of Kells.
It can be said that this is a form of Insular Celtic art, which is an art history term that can be loosely defined as a style of art that has been blended together in a highly concentrated space. In this case, that refers to the British Isles during a time of Nordic and Saxon influence.
Within the Early Medieval times of Northern Europe, it often refers to the art created by monks within highly valuable manuscripts.
Key features of this style are knotwork, winding animals, and tangled individuals wound about vegetal tendrils.
The most famous examples of this style can be found in The Book of Kells and The Lindesfarne Gospels.
