Origin of Designs & Symbols
Ireland has the largest concentration of megalithic art in Europe, particularly in the Boyne Valley, dating from the Neolithic or late stone age. In this Megalithic Era, mounments such as Newgrange and others were constructed across Ireland. The mounds were known as the Bru, the house of the Tuathade Dannan, the Mystical Spirit People of Sidhe. This art from appears to be entirely abstract and is prephaps the most famous with its well multiple-spirals.
