1 in stock
This cross is inspired by an actual carved stone monument in Cork, Ireland. This 9th Century cross is a beautiful example of early Celtic ornamentation. It is one of the earliest dated examples of Celtic art that has survived. The cross is covered with a diagonal key-pattern and a central circle is filled in with a wreath of interlaced knot work, but leaving a small central circle within to symbolize the motionless mover, God. The design is first hand carved by the artist in clay or wax and then a mold is made from the original carving. The molds are cast with a sturdy cast stone material and a strong wire loop for hanging is part of this cross. After cleaning, the cast piece goes through six steps of sealer and color that gives these crosses their distinctive color. For hanging indoors or outdoors. McHarp ………. Crosses with meaning.
