Slainte Mhath (pronounced as Slancha va) is the Scottish Gaelic for "Good Health". It is commonly used as a drinking toast. The proposer will say “Slainte Mhath” and the popular response will be “Slainte Mhor” (pronounced as Slancha vor), which translates as “Great Health”
It is also used as a Jacobite toast with an alternative meaning as "health to Marion", Marion being a Jacobite code name for Prince Charles Edward Stuart, (Bonnie Prince Charlie)
This piece is a contemporary design inspired by Celtic & Pictish carved rock art and depicts a Scottish Guardian thistle with the Gaelic words Slainte Mhath in a Celtic script.
This is an indoors wall hanging piece. It comes with a hanging hole in the rear so that it can be hung flush to the wall. It is a heavy piece at 0.7kg so must be hung from a wall capable of supporting this weight, using fixings or anchors suitable for the wall type and construction. Risk of injury or damage if this piece is not correctly displayed.
HOW THIS MINIATURE WAS CREATED
After many hours researching a subject, I travel the country to measure, sketch and photograph it. This information is brought to my workshop where I set about producing a detailed scale drawing. Once this is completed I use the drawing alongside the photographs to enable me to carve and sculpt the subject in miniature. This whole process takes many hours, often running into the hundreds. At the end the miniature sculpture becomes the master model with which I make the molds. Each resin casting I make from the molds is an exact reproduction of my original sculpture. I then spend a great deal of time with each and every casting to prepare and paint it using a variety of spray and brush techniques to create a realistic representation of the original, ancient subject. Every stage of this piece you see here is crafted entirely by hand.
