Riassunto: The treasures of Ireland are legendary. The physical beauty of the land itself is well documented, and the creations of its inhabitants are extraordinary. This lavish book focuses on Irish cultural history as expressed through her artists and artisans - everything from ancient portal dolmens to the Book of Kells, from stone towers to medieval high crosses and soaring monasteries. Fortresses and castles and other architectural splendors are explored, along with early gold creations, masterful paintings, and stunning stained glass windows. In a variety of media including stonework, metalwork, handwork, architecture, and painting, Ireland's artists and craftspeople tell a provocative story of a land deeply rooted in tradition. This coffee-table book tours Ireland's rich cultural history with memorable stops at every imaginable venue.
