Re: Celtic Abstract Art

Personally I wouldn't call it abstract.

Interesting though the way some of them play with images.

Re: Celtic Abstract Art

Due to the historical context, it's difficult to put such images into boxes, but there are aspects of abstractionism to be noted, as well as many other (raw) artistic processes.

Re: Celtic Abstract Art

I'd go so far as to say impressionist?

Re: Celtic Abstract Art

The examples cited are mostly coins, with little indication of their size.
Without knowing size, I'd expect these to be very small, demonstrating great skill in producing figurative impressions.
