Celebrating the symbols of Ireland and its heritage – this framed decorated native Irish Oyster celebrates the Triscal, or triple spiral and its significance in Irish culture. The Triscal, Triskele or Triskelion is a symbol that consists of three interlocked spirals. It is one of the oldest Irish Celtic symbols in existence. The symbol can be seen on ancient artefacts, such as the entrance stone at Newgrange, Ireland’s famous Neolithic burial tomb in County Meath.
This abstract art showcases a vibrant green background adorned with faint Irish cultural symbols emerging from the depths. This artwork serves as a visual representation of Irish heritage, encapsulating the essence of the country’s rich cultural tapestry.
Irish heritage is deeply rooted in storytelling, mythology, and a strong sense of community. This artwork encapsulates these aspects, inviting viewers to reflect on their connections to their heritage and the stories that have shaped their identities.
The use of a Native Irish oyster shell in this artwork holds cultural significance. Oysters have long been associated with Ireland’s coastal regions. Incorporating this element into the artwork pays homage to Ireland’s rich cultural heritage.
The Native Irish Oyster, or Ostrea edulis, is a prized delicacy that seafood lovers have enjoyed for centuries. It’s not as common as it used to be and is typically harvested between September and April only.
Beyond its visual appeal, these artworks also serve as a tribute to Ireland’s deep-rooted history and rich cultural heritage.
We believe that every shell has a tale to tell. Our oysters are from the west coast of Ireland, picked from the waters of the world-famous “Galway Bay” part of Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way.
Shells are genuinely one-of-a-kind gifts because no two are alike. They are tumbled by the wild Atlantic Ocean waves and shaped by the changing seasons, resulting in varying sizes and shapes. We work with what nature has given us. Variations such as; growth marks, ragged edges, chipped backs, and barnacles make each one special.
Every shell is individually picked, cleaned, prepared, hand-painted and decorated by our artists at our studio in Galway, Ireland.
Whether you receive this as a gift or purchase it for yourself as a decoration, a memento of a trip, or for friends or family to mark an occasion or relationship, you are becoming part of this Oyster’s tale.
