Irish High Cross Trinket Box
Height 5.8cm Width 8cm
High Crosses can reach heights of four metres and the classic ring at the top is said to be a symbol of eternity. Celtic crosses are usually carved of sandstone or granite and indicate a holy place.
This carving is made by a process known as Intarsia, which is the ancient art of making pictorial mosaics by laying precious and exotic woods onto a solid wood surface. Seven different woods are used to make these Celtic designs.
