The Farr Stone, a cross-slab from Sutherland, is a very fine piece of Celtic Art. Around the outside of the cross there is knotwork merging into rams-horn designs. But the cross itself provides a most unusual symbolism. The shaft represents the world-axis rising up to the circle of heaven with the central spiral representing the Divinity. In addition, the shaft rises from a hemispherical mound with tow winged beasts with their necks intertwined inside the mound, the symbolism reminds us of Vortiger's tower in the Arthurian legends. The tower would not stand up for Vortigern because he had not subdued the beast beneath. Or, he had not achieved peace within himself.
From: Farr, Scotland
Due to the hand casting and proprietary staining process, each of my plaques is unique. Each cross comes with a hanger embedded in the stone. The cross comes with a descriptive tag describing the original stone, explanation of the design or information on where the cross is located.
