Celtic Cross, McHarp Stone Ceramic Muthill of Scotland Celtic Cross
The Muthill Cross is found in the grassy ancient ruins of the old church in the small village of Muthill in Scotland. The panels of interwoven, flowing and continuous Celtic knot work represent the interconnectedness of life, things without beginnings and ends, and the ongoing spiritual journey. The outer circle symbolizes heaven. Cast in the USA by McHarp, each cross is inspired by an actual carved stone cross in Ireland or the British Isles. The piece is first carved in clay, and then a mold is taken from the carving. The molds are used to cast the crosses in a durable stone ceramic like material (not resin), and the pieces are then stained and sealed several times to achieve the final finish. The cross comes with an attached wire hanger on the back, and is ready to be displayed indoors or outdoors in sheltered areas. The cross measures 14” x 5-1/2” and comes with a little insert giving the origins of the original cross.
