Celtic & Pictish Crosses & carved stones
Historic Architecture models
This is a contemporary design based on the styles of dark age and medieval Celtic & Pictish High Crosses.
The “Tree Of Life” Celtic Cross is a contemporary design, taking Celtic symbol elements and combining them in this beautiful piece, simple yet full of Meaning. This sculpture encapsulates and brings to you the spirit of the tree of life. Growth, shelter, protection, provision and spirituality.
When a tribe cleared the land for a settlement, they always left a great tree in the middle, known as the "crann bethadh" or Tree of Life, that embodied the security of the people. Chieftains were inaugurated at the sacred tree, for, with its roots stretching down to the lower world, its branches reaching to the upper world, it connected him with the power both of the heavens and the worlds below. Trees were regarded as living, magical beings who bestowed blessings from the Otherworld
This sculpture also acknowledges our ancestor Celtic craftsmen, whose work inspires my work.
