HoneyMoon Batik Wall Hanging is a painting of the Moon which has always been an important aspect in Ireland. Engravings of the moon or lunar cycle can be found on Irish Rock Art that date as far back as 5000 years old. In order to show the moons importance, our ancestors engraved the moon in rocks documenting its changes during the lunar cycle. In Ireland a beautiful example of this can be seen in Knowth, Co. Meath on Kerbstone 52. See a picture of this beautiful engraved rock here https://www.knowth.com/knowth-kerbstone52.htm
However, some of the Oldest Lunar Calendars have been identified in cave art found in France and Germany. https://sservi.nasa.gov/articles/oldest-lunar-calendars/
Traditionally, the word “HoneyMoon” comes from the Scandinavian practice of drinking mead, which is fermented honey during the first month of the marriage (measured by one moon cycle) to improve the likelihood of conception. Most people know it as the holiday Married couples take after their wedding. So what does the word HoneyMoon mean? “Honey” is a sweet period of time. And “moon” because it takes a month for the moon to wane and wax anew.
