This Flers cross is in the shape of the Fleur-de-lis, a stylized iris and the French royal emblem. Flers is a small village in Normandy. The seaboard province of Normandy has a history of prosperous independence as one of the crucial powers of medieval Europe. Colonized by Scandanavian Vikings (or Norsemen) beginning in the ninth century, it in turn began to colonize during the eleventh and twelfth centuries, with military expeditions conquering not only England but as far away as Sicily and areas of the Near East.

    This mother daughter artist team own and run this family business. Both of them are gifted in carving and design. Each object they handcraft is inspired by an actual carved stone monument and has a reference to the time period and culture it was taken from. Once a monument is selected, the piece is hand carved by the artists and a mold is made. Each of the molds are cast with a sturdy cast stone material and it goes through several steps to make it look as close to the ancient stone carvings as possible. These pieces are a wonderful architectural adornment in the home as well as in the garden. They represent a tie to our rich past and can be enjoyed for years to come.
