Worn for protection and power, the dragon was a powerful symbol for the ancient Celts
“No, I would not want to live in a world without dragons, as I would not want to live in a world without magic, for that is a world without mystery, and that is a world without faith.”
R.A. Salvatore, Streams of Silver

This Celtic dragon is a Museum Recreation of a Celtic amuletic artifact dating to 3,000 – 2,500 BC. Originally created in bronze by the ancient Celts, it was worn for protection and power thousands of years ago, and yours will now accompany you on your own adventures.
The dragons are often portrayed in Celtic art in the form of a circle – with their tails in their mouths, or consuming the circle. It is believed that this “endless” image depicts the cycle of nature and the immortality of the spirit.
We call this dragon the "Open Dragon." It may have been used as a clothing fastener as well as a amulet.
