This is a contemporary sculpture based on Celtic & Pictish metal casting. It depicts a small hand-worked cross. This is a simple cross that would have been used as a personal amulet or altar piece. It has been named Saint Kevin’s Cross and is inspired by an Irish Celtic stone carved cross from the monastery at Glendalough.
The original of this piece was carved by Stuart Fellowes into a block of wax in the same manner that a Celtic craftsman would have done to create a “Lost Wax” bronze casting. It is finished in an antiqued polished bronze effect to represent an ancient artifact
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
