The Celts were fascinated by astronomy - think Stonehenge at Summer Solstice - but knowledge of astronomy was concentrated in the Druids - a higher class of Celtic social structure who spent many years of training in the art of astronomy.
The Celtic Knotwork depicted in the center of this needlepoint canvas reflect the symbols discovered on the Newgrange Stones and of course, the Sun was greatly revered by ancient Celtic society
