Description

A must-have for all dog lovers, lovers of history or celtic art.

In Wales, long ago, lived a prince called Llywelyn the Great. He had a faithful hound named Gelert and they were inseperable.

One day when Llywelyn was out hunting, his faithful hound Gelert went missing, and Llywelyn returned home alone.

He found Gelert there: limping, panting; his jaws dripping with blood. And in the far corner of the room the cradle of Llywelyn’s baby son was overturned and empty; the baby’s fur coverings shredded and torn; the worn flagstones smeared with fresh blood.

Grimly, Prince Llywelyn drew his sword and plunged it into the treacherous hound who had killed his small boy.

But Gelert’s dying cry was answered by the cry of a child. Llywelyn searched and found his son, alive and unharmed, hidden by the cradle. At the side, slain by Gelert in a fierce struggle to protect the baby, lay the body of a mighty wolf.

The sad prince buried Gelert with honour in a meadow by the River Glaslyn, and the village which grew up around it took its name from the grave of Gelert – Bedd Gelert in Welsh – and in the long years after Gelert’s death Prince Llywelyn is said never to have smiled again.

Honour Gelert's fidelity and bravery with this wonderful intricately carved celtic plaque. Measuring 28cm x 9cm (11 x 3.5in), it can be displayed in a variety of ways.

Why not stick it on a door, internal or external (it is completely weatherproof), display it on a shelf, or put it in a frame on your wall?

To attach the Gelert plaque to a door, we suggest a 2-part epoxy glue for external use, or simply use superglue or blu/white-tac for internal doors.

Gelert is available in an antique gold or silver finish. Alternatively, a primed version is available that you can paint to your own tastes. Please add a note specifying gold, silver, or unpainted to PayPal when ordering.
