Original Celtic Art and Designs by Jen Delyth - Celtic Tree of Life

"When a tribe cleared the land for a settlement, they always left a great tree in the middle, known in Ireland as the "crann bethadh," or Tree of Life, that embodied the security and integrity of the people. Chieftains were inaugurated at the sacred tree, for, with its roots stretching down to the lower world, its branches reaching to the upper world, it connected him with the power both of the heavens and the worlds below. One of the greatest triumphs a tribe could achieve over its enemies was to cut down their mother tree, an outrage punishable by the highest penalties."
- Mara Freeman 1998

This is perhaps Jen Delyth's most well known and appreciated design that she created in 1990. This is an original, contemporary design, not based on any ancient or modern Celtic pattern. However, it is taking root as a modern Celtic Folk motif to speak of the interconnection of all living things.
