Dunkeld Cross

$36.00 USD

After the union of the Picts of northern and eastern Scotland with the Scots of the Highlands in mid 9th century, Dunkeld became the most important Christian center in Scotland. This cross design comes from an early cross-slab that has typical Pictish symbols surround the cross. The center of the cross has a variation of the spiral representing God, the source of light with all things revolving around Him. The knotwork covering the rest of the cross is unending and thus cannot be untied. This symbolizes the knots, which bind the soul to the earth. These knots must be cut and broken for the soul to become free to begin the spiritual journey to heaven. The knotwork is also said to represent everlasting life.

From: Dunkeld, 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.
