Among the celestial constellations of the Celts was a group of stars known as Arthur’s Wain (wagon). We know it today as the Big Dipper, or Ursa Major. To the ancient peoples of the British Isles, it was King Arthur riding through the skies, protecting his people and bringing them peace and bounty. The Wagon also represents the last Load coming in from the fields. This piece symbolizes the fulfillment achieved by tasks done by hand, and the pride of the skilled in their Crafts.
