Replica of Ireland's Dromiskin Cross, hand-cast in stone composite 9 1/2" x 5"; Item CR-DROM
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.
This is a cast stone replica of the ringed Dromiskin Cross, whose exact age and origins are unknown. The original is found mounted on a modern shaft near the round tower in the Dromiskin churchyard in West Face, County Louth, Ireland. Those who see it are struck by its simple, dramatic lines including a Celtic spiral at its center, denoting continuous motion and eternal growth. The stem and arms are marked by long, fluid Irish knotwork. With no beginning and no end, Irish knotwork is a fitting symbol of everlasting 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 measures 9 1/2" high and 5" wide and 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.
