About This Quiz

From a simple interconnecting design to a powerful drawing, the graceful beauty of Celtic iconography has made this ancient artwork a favorite of those who enjoy eye-pleasing jewelry and inking their skin. It's not the beauty alone that makes it inspirational, but also the meaning behind it.

Celtic iconography is rich in symbols of spirit, such as the Triquetra that symbolizes an eternal spiritual life, one with no beginning and no end. The Celtic artwork also is derived from gods and goddesses such as The Sheela na Gig, a fertility figure. And then there are images that come from mythological tales such as the Green Man, represented in many cultures as a head of a man composed of foliage. 

For centuries, Celtic symbols and signs held incredible power for the ancient Celts in their daily life. These emblems have now become part of the Irish identity and heritage. For instance, the Celtic Cross is easy to recognize. Combining the cross with a circle that surrounds the intersection, the Celtic Cross became popular for cemetery monuments and other uses.
