Riasg Buidhe Celtic Cross (Colonsay)

This piece is a scale representation of the 4-6th century Riasg Buidhe (pronounced “risk booee”) Celtic Cross on the Hebridean island of Colonsay.

Little is known about the origin or history of this small carved cross. The height is 1.37m and it is carved in low relief with a Latin style cross, terminating at the foot in a fish-like forked tail, and at the top in a human face thought to represent God or Jesus.  The cross originally stood near the chapel of Riasg Buidhe, but it was laterly moved to the holy well of Tobar Oran, in the grounds of Colonsay House.

The cross symbol is thought to be a meeting place and recepticle for divine energies. This sculpture carries the spirit of the Celtic craftsmen and embodies the virtues of the cross.
