"The Sacred Bond" was created in 2007 for a just married, young couple.
Both of them very fond of fantasy, they asked me for a painting with fairies, dragons and other elements from their favourite fantasy books and computergame.
They also asked me for a painting with a lot of birds in it, alike Silent Call.
Above the portal inside the foot of the marital-goblet has been written "Gun cuireadh do chupa thairis le slainte agus sonas."*
The goldplated ring above this portal symbolizes fidelity and an infinite loving union between these two people.
The steps and waterfalls in the painting, represent the ups and downs that they will have to overcome during their marriage.

Gaelic

*The Celtic text:
"Gun cuireadh do chupa thairis le slainte agus sonas" on the marital-goblet says: "May your cup overflow with health and happiness".
