This, one of the first stone high crosses, was a sculpting achievement; it assimilated metal working, devising a ring to support the huge 7-foot cross arm, and effected a theological statement. The ring, a simple symbol of the unity of all things, a concept dear to the Celts, was from now on, to distinguish the Celtic Cross.

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.
