   The Celtic Heart was inspired by a Scottish folk tale of two young lovers. They lived in the village of Dunan on the Isle of Skye. On their wedding day the groom went with his kin to fish Rassay Sound. The weather turned stormy, the groom was swept overboard and drowned in the Kyle of Lochalsh. His body was brought home to his young bride. She was so overcome with grief that she died the next day of sorrow. They were buried side by side in the village kirk yard.        The next spring from each grave grew a slender, green vine. Together, the vines grew up the wall of the kirk. On the first anniversary of their wedding the vines tied themselves into a traditional lover’s knot in the shape of a heart.
