"The piece of ASCII art that was the inspiration for
our little script today ( or, in all honesty, the ASCII art I took
and just perverted into a shell script ;) was found on Joan Stark's
wonderful and massive ASCII Art Site. There's a lot of great stuff
over there if you're into it. Definitely check it out, if you are.
"From the description of the picture below, from her site:
"The Claddagh is a visual portrayal of the eternal bond of
friendship, loyalty, and love.
"The HEART symbolizes love, life's finest impulse. From it,
generosity and compassion flow.
"The HANDS of friendship are clasped around the heart in a
gesture of giving. As they cradle the heart gently, the hands are
both protective and strong, like true friendship.
"The CROWN is symbolic of loyalty. It represents the reward of
love, the highest achievement the human spirit has yet
"To give the Claddagh is to forge the hands of love, friendship,
and loyalty forever"
