Product Description

The design for this cross was based on a Gothic design element on a 16th century painted ceiling in the Knight's Hall of Bishop's Castle in Füssen, Germany. The Gothic period was rich in applied ornament such as carved wood and stone and fabric design – to name a few. The predominant feature in Gothic ornament was the oak leaf. Füssen, situated within the Alps of southern German in the state of Bavaria, was on an important trade route and experience experienced its most rapid growth in the late Middle Ages. The area that is now known as Bavaria was inhabited in early times by Celts and Romans. The German Baiovarii, which gave the territory its name, arrived here during the 5th and 6th centuries. Perched high above the town stands the palace of the Augsburg prince-bishops. Started in 1291 by the Bavarian Prince Ludwig II the Severe, construction was continued in 1490-1503 by the Augsburg bishops.
