A piece of ash, felled in 2022, from just a mile outside Richhill, in Co Armagh.

For centuries, ash trees have been a symbol of healing, magic and life. In many religions and folklore tales from across the world, there is a 'world tree' or 'tree of life'; a cosmic pillar linking the heavens, Earth and underworld, also known as an 'axis mundi' In Norse mythology, this is an ash tree.

The hand burnt design is originally sourced on a silver bowl, found in Lilla Valla, Gotland, decorated in Urnes style art. It is dated to c1050.

Measures 6.5 inch across, and about 2.5 deep
