This comes from St. Kevin’s church in the beautiful and dramatic vale of Glendalough, Co.Wicklow. The cross is the most ancient and powerful of symbols: an encounter of the vertical with the horizontal, the feminine and masculine, temporal and eternal. The circle of the Celtic cross, implying infinity, gives it a cosmic dimension. This carving by Kathleen Smyth captures the serenity of the original.
