Labore est Orare

(Work is praying) This was chanted by monks in the early Medieval period. It means that if you are following your true path in life, work is a joy, not a chore.

It is based on designs form the Book of Kells written c.800 in Iona or Kells. This style of illumination is called Insular. Hand painted using watercolours and ink on parchment.
