Celtic & Pictish Crosses & carved stones
Historic Architecture models
This is a contemporary sculpture by Stuart Fellowes and is based on early Celtic & Pictish metal casting. It depicts a small hand-worked cross. This is a simple cross that would have been used as a personal amulet or altar piece. It has been named “Serenity Cross” The original of this piece was carved into a block of wax in the same manner that a Celtic craftsman would have done to create a “Lost Wax” bronze casting. It is finished in an antiqued polished bronze effect to represent an ancient artefact
The Celtic Cross has been used as a Christian symbol since the 4th Century and has it’s origins with early Pagan Celts who used similar designs to create a “Sun Cross”, later ascribed Christian meaning by missionaries to convert the Celts and Picts to Christianity.
The cross symbol is thought to be a meeting place and recepticle for divine energies. This sculpture carries the spirit of the Celtic craftsmen and embodies the virtues of the cross
This piece comes ready with a hanging hole on the rear to enable it to be hung flush to the wall from a pin-nail.
Hand polished. Cold-cast Bronze reproduction of Stuart Fellowes’ original sculpture.
