The Celtic Tree of Life is often drawn showing the branches reaching skyward and the roots spreading out into the earth below symbolising the Druid belief in the link between heaven and earth. Trees provided shelter and food, and warmth through firewood and are a home for animals, birds and insects. The Tree of Life exists in many cultures, religions and mythologies; the cycle of life and the interconnectedness of all creation. Christianity and Judaism see the Tree of Life as a symbol of purity, strength and wisdom.
The Celts attributed the qualities of wisdom, longevity and strength to the tree of life. Birds stand for freedom and transcendence. Birds have the power to soar up into the heavens, and so they represented liberation of the human soul. Birds were thought to bring messages of guidance and prophecy from the gods down to the earth, making them mediators between humans and the heavens.

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.
