Kells Angels Ornament 321

$20.00 USD

The Book of Kells, a large format manuscript codex of the Latin text of the Gospels, is generally thought to have originated at the Monastery of Iona, Scotland. About 807, after a series of devastating Viking raids, it was taken to the Monastery of Kells, Ireland. The delightful angels in this series are found scattered throughout the text; at the ends of lines or between lines. They provide color and sometimes, even humor. Angels were considered messengers; intermediaries between God and man.

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.
