About this Piece
This ancient carved stone is a perfect example of ‘La Tene' art from the 1st to 3rd century BC. It originally stood on a hillfort in the town land of Bullan, Co. Galway and is believed to have been used to bless marriages.
About the Maker
Created by Jeanne Rynhart in 1981, Rynhart's bronze sculptures have been captivating people all over the world ever since. Each piece is individually handmade with delicate modelling, before a mold is made and the sculpture is cast in bronze. Finally, the piece is polished and finishing touches are added.
Today the studio is run by Jeanne's daughter Audrey and her husband Les Elliot, who both manage the company from Glengarriff in West Cork.
