Product Description

This delightful cross, dating from around 710, is an Anglican Cross found in the former, Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Northumbria, which included parts of southern Scotland and northern England. All that now remains of the Bewcastle Cross, is the shaft which is 14 feet high. The designs of the Bewcastle and the Ruthwell crosses (in Scotland) are so similar that they are thought to be of the same school and period. The vine transforms the stone cross into a physical representation of the Tree of Life, symbolizing life's unity, spiritual growth and rebirth – hope, health, and happiness. The vine scroll design was used with great frequency on the stone monuments of Northumbria. The knotwork represents continuity and conveys the interconnectedness of all things.
