This is a contemporary design and sculpture by Stuart Fellowes 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 piece is a resin casting that has been entirely hand made at every stage from carving the original model to the final coat of paint on this reproduction. It is designed for wall hanging and can be mounted flush using the built in “hanging hole” on the back.
