Sterling Silver St. Patricks and Columba Kells High Cross

Item# 16526
This cross of St. Patrick and St. Columba is an authentic copy of the front and back faces of the original cross in Kells, County Meath.Columba founded a monastic settlement in Iona, an island off the coast of Scotland in 561. It was plundered repeatedly by Vikings and in 806 the surviving monks moved to Kells. It was there that Ireland's best collection of High Crosses was assembled. The Cross of Kells, like the other crosses, is weather worn but it is still possible to discern its great beauty and unusual features.

Our Celtic crosses are handcrafted in our workshop by our master Fado Jewellers-Co. Dubin who take great care in reproducing the detail and originality of these ancient monuments.The scenes depicted in the panels of the cross are from the Old and New Testaments.
