Ireland is famous for its hand-knit Aran sweaters made from the wool of these black-face mountain sheep. The backbone of farming in Ireland theif bright cream coloured fleeces dot the green patchwork of fields throughout the land. This unique plaque is made by a process known as Intarsia which is the ancient art of making pictorial mosaics by laying precious and exotic woods onto a solid wood surface. Seven different woods are used to make these Celtic designs creating a 3D effect. It is a tasteful and beautiful gift that can be displayed in any home.
