Artist's Description

Celtic cross is a symbol that combines a cross with a ring surrounding the intersection; the cross’ stem being longer than the other three’s intersection.

It belongs to a wider group of crosses with a nimbus.

The Celtic Christians combined the usual four members of the Christian cross with the nimbus to create high crosses – a free-standing cross made of stone which was often richly decorated.

The Celtic Revival shape, usually decorated with interlace and other motifs from Insular art, became popular for funerary monuments and other uses, and has remained so, spreading well beyond Ireland.
