Cross Of Duleek Cross and Chain in Sterling Silver
Sterling Silver Celtic pendant handmade with great care and attention to detail to be an exact replica of the original Cross of Duleek.
Cross of Duleek, Co. Meath. The name comes from an ancient stone church said to have been founded by St. Patrick in the 5th century. No trace of the church remains. This is a small sandstone cross of about 1.8 meters in height. It is part of a group known as “transitional crosses”. These were monuments that were carved before the scripture crosses and after the purely decorative crosses.
The Cross of Duleek is unusual in that the East face of the cross is completely covered in Celtic and geometric designs. While on the West face are scenes including the Crucifixion and a monastery story.
