The Slane Abbey Cross was developed and inspired  from a cross in Co. Meath; Ireland. The shamrocks; of course
are a symbol of Ireland and seem to represent "everything Irish".  The heart and rays streaming from it represent
Christ, the Light of the World.  The small bosses of spirals represent spiritual growth.  Along the sides of the
shaft a well known Irish Blessing is engraved "May your blessings outnumber the shamrocks".

This Cross requires a 2 Week Lead time

Cross Measures 8" x 3¾"
Handcrafted replica of artifact from Ireland
Wire hanger attached for easy hanging

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 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.
