Moone Cross

$66.00 USD

In an old graveyard of Moen Cholum Cille, site of and early Columban monastery, is perhaps the most striking of all Irish High Crosses. The cross at Moone is 17 feet high thus making it the second tallest High Cross in the country. The animals depicted on the shaft of the cross are domestic animals. Animals, which then as is true now, were very important to the common people. Perhaps this is a blessing for the animals that they so depended on. The spirals on the head of the cross symbolizes all that is rhythmical, the seasons of the year, life and death, of becoming and passing away; cycles that were very important to their agricultural way of life.

 

Dimensions: 15" 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.
