Celtic Cross

“ It’s not about capturing the scene, its about capturing the imagination ”

A Celtic cross is a symbol that combines a cross with a ring surrounding the intersection. In the Celtic Christian world it was combined with the Christian cross and this design was often used for high crosses – a free-standing cross made of stone and often richly decorated.

This is the Celtic Cross at Kilfenora, called the West cross. It dates back to the 11th Century. Kilfenora has 3 of the famous High Celtic Cross. The other two are located in the church (can be seen in the left side of the picture, with a glass ceiling).
