Birds in Celtic Art

“ The words of your messengers have soared like winged things above the earth beneath the firmament of your Book, for this was the authority given to them and beneath it they were to take wing wherever their journey lay.”                                                                                                                                    St Augustine, Book XIII, Ch. 20.

Don't attempt to make the birds lifelike or even anatomically correct. It's more important to capture the essence of a bird, rather than make it readily identifiable as a particular species.
