5 in stock
Saint Brigid also known as Mary of the Gael, is the Celtic Saint of well being. She wove the original symbolic cross from rushes from the River Shannon. An Irish tradition is to hang her Cross over doors on her feast day of February 1st to invite good health for the coming year as well as protecting your home from Evil and Want. That is why a Saint Brigid’s Cross makes a perfect New Home gift.Saint Brigid built the first Irish convent beside a huge oak tree, known as Cill Dara (Church of the Oak Tree), now known as Kildare.This 3.75″W X 3.75″L Saint Brigid’s Cross has wonderful detail. It is because of this size plus the weight of the brass that I suggest this piece could also be used as a paperweight.Comes boxed from Ireland.
