Portfolio - Celtic Cross - Click on image for details
When speaking of the Celts, one of the most evocative images that comes to mind is that of the Celtic cross. Many magnificent examples of carved crosses are found all over Ireland, the Hebrides, the Isle of Mann and Wales. While early crosses were usually positioned as meeting places, often within a Celtic monastic settlement, in modern times, most usually signify burial sites. Yet, some were created for their sheer beauty and others "in the glory of God". This is an example of a "high cross", usually a cross within a circle. The Celtic cross today symbolizes the blending of the Celtic and Christian traditions with the weaved latticework and fancy knots of typical Celtic design. This design was obtained from Celtic artist, Cari Buziak's website, Aon Celtic Art, and is available as a free clip art design.
