Details

The hound is a common motif in Celtic designs - in the legends it is one of the 'totem' animals that guide one to the Otherworld of Annwn. This knotwork design resembles those later Christian manuscripts such as the Books of Kells, Durrow and Lindisfarne but was actually inspired by a little Whippet dog belonging to the Talbot Hotel in Tregaron!
