This 18th ceuntury penal cross is unique to Irish folk art. The arms of the cross are short so that it could easily be hidden up the sleeve.
This piece is finished in bronze, a precious metal prized by the ancient Celts in Ireland 4000 years ago.
The Wild Goose Studio
Since its foundation in 1970, Wild Goose Studio has sought its inspiration in Ireland's history, poetry and mythology. From the beginning, a group of skilled craft-workers in Kinsale, Co. Cork has maintained the tradition of high quality as the range of images has grown. The early experimental spirit of cofounders Brian Scott-McCarthy and Kathleen Smyth remains to this day as Wild Goose broadens its horizons and expands its offering of award-winning gifts for friends, family and for you.
