The Irish love their love of Celtic knotwork. This mug would work well as a gift on St. Patrick's Day. It would do honor to anyone of Irish descent.
Most people don't realize that the design is known In Nordic lore as well. Yggdrasill, the Viking Tree of Life, is mentioned in the Eddas (Snorri Sturluson).
The beautiful Nordic symbol featured on this mug is a rendering of Celtic knotwork that was originally carved in stone.
So the mug makes a thoughtful gift for people of both Irish and Scandinavian descent. Perfect for those who love Nordic runes, ancient lore, the myths of Scandinavia, and the tales of the Norsemen.
Here’s a quote from the Poetic Edda:
An ash I know there stands,
Yggdrasill is its name,
a tall tree, showered
with shining loam.
From there come the dews
that drop in the valleys.
It stands forever green over
