Nearly 200 carved crosses have survived on the Isle of Man dating from the Celtic early Christian period in the 7th century and through the period of the Viking settlement up to the early 11th century. The interlinked ring design forming the shafts of Scandinavian (Viking) influence. The wheel cross at the top of the cross was originally a symbol of Christ derived from chi-rho monogram although it is likely that the outer circle came to symbolize heaven (in conforming with ancient symbolism). Christ in the center of heaven represented by the inner circle.

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.
