THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING A U.S. SMALL BUSINESS AND AN INDEPENDENT ARTIST 


1.This is a representation of the patterns and design work found in the Book of Kells, a very important and beautiful element of early Irish heritage.

2.The green flag has a lot of symbolic value but it is also a simplified tribute to the flag held by The 69th Infantry unit. They were nicknamed “The Fighting Irish” during the American Civil War as they were an Irish heritage unit.

3.This design of interlocking lines was thought to have originated in Ireland.  It is an integral part of Celtic art possibly derived from by the look of woven baskets.

4.The central figure is a depiction of an amalgam of all the history and tradition of the Fighting Irish.  As with all of the figures, this man is not really of any particular face or ethnic background. He is just proud, strong, hardworking, and tough.

5.This figure is a salute to those who have died fighting on behalf of this country.

6.This figure is a tribute to the hard working immigrants that endured immense risk and struggle to build the country we know today.

7.This figure is a tribute to fighting spirit and grit.

8.This figure is meant to honor the work of Catholic priests in the early days of immigration to America’s cities, especially their efforts in creating orphanages.

9.This figure is a representation of a statue in Dublin memorializing those who suffered from the Great Potato Famine.

10.This area of blue represents the ocean and cliffs that were crossed and climbed literally and figuratively by those in pursuit of a better life for their children.

11.This print is a tribute to the millions of people who embody the tradition of the name Fighting Irish, as well as the generations of families that form its history.
