Replica of Ireland's famous Ahenny Cross, hand-cast in stone composite 13 1/4" x 4 1/2"; Item CR-AHEN
The Irish Wake offers gorgeous stone Celtic crosses that are detailed replicas of magnificent crosses dotting the landscape of Ireland,
at cathedrals, abbeys, and other sacred places... some towering as much as 15 feet high.
This is a cast stone replica of Ireland's famous Ahenny Cross. It measures 13 1/4" high x 4 1/2" wide.
Dating to the 9th Century, the towering 12-foot-high Ahenny Cross in County Tipperary is one
of the earliest known examples of Celtic art, with its traditional woven knotwork and outer ring representing an eternal force field of life.
Authentic to the tiniest detail, this cross is cast by hand in a composite stone material, and has a beautiful antique patina. The cross has a hanger on the back.
These sturdy, substantial crosses are the perfect accompaniment to an Irish funeral memorial service,
whether hung on the wall, placed on or in the casket, decorating the podium, or
displayed amongst the flowers.
Afterwards, a cross is a touching remembrance for
Irish families to display at home as a
lasting tribute to their departed loved one.
