Bronze with a resin interior.
This 18th ceuntury penal cross is unique to Irish folk art. The arms of the cross are short so that it could easily be hidden up the sleeve.
Cast by hand in Ireland at the Wild Goose Studios, Kinsale, County Cork.
Bronze pieces can be hung indoors or in a protected place outdoors. Indoors, polish gently with a soft cloth; outdoors bronze will develop verdigris.
Ready to hang.
On the back of each piece there is a label that explains it's origins and significance, so that you can understand the imagination that lies behind it.
