“Spirit Of Iona” Celtic Cross

This piece represents an early Christian Celtic Cross slab that was found on the Island of Iona. I have reconstructed how the cross would have been seen when it was first carved around 1000 years ago. The carving is a cross formed out of a double-ribbon interlace. At the centre of the cross is a square knot, and the terminals of the arms and shaft are semicircular knots. This design is of a style known now as the “Iona School” and as such I have named my depiction “Spirit Of Iona”

The Celtic Cross has been used as a Christian symbol since the 4th Century and has it’s origins with early Pagan Celts who used similar designs to create a “Sun Cross”, later ascribed Christian meaning by missionaries to convert the Celts and Picts to Christianity.

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
