Round Tower

A round tower is an iconic image of Ireland.  Seventy five round towers still stand in Ireland today. Constructed primarily in the 10th to 12th century, they are never found independent of a monastic enclosure. This tapestry design, in its simplicity, depicts the tall, circular, tapering structure with a conical roof.  The round tower is located in a meadow of wild flowers and set against a cobalt sky.
