Dysert O'Dea Cross

$69.00 USD

A 12th century limestone High Cross which stands 11 feet high. The east face is dominated by a figure of Christ in a long robe and triumphantly stretching forth his arms. Beneath Him, a bishop with mitre and volute crozier, probably representing the local saint, Tola, who founded a monastery in the 8th century. The hole is where the right hand, a separate carved stone, was attached but is now gone.

From: East Face,  Co. Clare, Ireland

Dimensions: 12" x 5"

 

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.
