Angel Of Death Onesies
The Celtic harp is a triangular harp traditional to Brittany, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. In Ireland and Scotland it was a wire-strung instrument requiring great skill and long practice to play, and was associated with the Gaelic ruling class. In the Republic of Ireland, it appears on the coins and coat of arms. You'll even find it on the pints of Guinness that you have been guzzling down! The Irish Brigades of the American Civil War identified themselves with a green flag emblazoned with a harp. This version incorporates an angel into the construction of the instrument with the phrase "Erin Go Bragh" ("Ireland Forever") beneath the celestial looking harp. I wanted to recreate this image, but with a Celtic Hammer Club twist (as always). I could have drawn my own beautiful, heavenly, cosmic, stellar, cherub and turned her into the front piece of the magnificent harp. But, no. I decided to create a bad ass looking skull and bones, jagged wings, and some additional Celtic swirls and knots to create the Celtic Hammer Club "Angel of Death" Celtic harp!
