|Although each tree had different meanings to the ancient Celts, the tree was uniformly venerated as a source of wisdom and hope, an enduring link between the upper and lower worlds, a reminder of the eternal cycle of the seasons.|
The Celtic Tree of Life is an image of the Otherworld. The roots were deep in the earth and the branches stretched to the heavens. Its trunk exists within this realm.
The Celtic Tree of Life is one of the most popular and enduring motifs of Celtic Art, found both on Celtic crosses and on illuminated manuscripts such as the Book of Kells.
