Large Iona Cross
Large Iona Cross.
This cross design comes from a recumbent cross-slab on the Isle of Iona. It has an outer circle, symbolizing heaven. The interior is filled with interlaced knotwork, which is endless. Fourteen centuries ago Iona was the center of the Christina world in the West. Iona was the place of final rest for 48 kings of Scotland (including MacBeth) and four Irish and eight Norwegian kings. From this sacred burial place came a large collection of West Highland sculptured slabs, a product of Ionan workmanship of the highest quality.
From: Isle of Iona, Scotland
Dimensions: 12 1/2" x 7"
Due to the hand casting and proprietary staining process, each of my plaques is unique. Each cross comes with a hanger embedded in the stone. The cross comes with a descriptive tag describing the original stone, explanation of the design or information on where the cross is located.
